I'd say 'No, it's neither long nor requiring sysadmin in most situations.' But I'm aware I'm a little biased.
What it DOES require is comfortability with getting into your system via SFTP/SSH and editing files manually.
Most hosts work just fine out of the box, and when they don't, the codex has the major issues covered (as do multiple online tutorials etc).
