Not a bad tool, but I don't think this will solve most of setup issues,
which lie in the database. From experience, nearly all newbie issues
with WP setup lies in the database configuration; uploading via FTP is
the easy bit.

Also, the setup wizards says "Please read the following License
Agreement [GPL]. You must agree to the terms before continuing."

Well, actually, you don't need to agree to the terms to use WordPress:

So, the license dialog is not necessary.

Just my little bit of feedback. I hope I don't sound like I'm trying to
put you off; it's certainly the contrary. :)
