Since I was composing this for the latest volunteer samboll, thought I'd
share this info with the group.

Here's a sample email I send to requesting individuals asking for their
login info
Hi John,

I'm know as MichaelH http://wordpress.org/support/profile/18989 on the
WordPress Support Forums.

You've asked that we install WordPress at your site.

Once you provide the following information, I'll  proceed to install
WordPress 2.0.3 at the domain you specify.

What is the domain WordPress is to be installed in?

Who is your host (example www.godaddy.com)?

Where do you login to manage your host account (example Cpanel login)?

What is your host login?

What is your host password?

What is your ftp IP address?

What is your ftp login?

What is your ftp password?

Thank you.

--send of sample email asking for information

Here's a sample of the email I send after I've completed the install:
Hi John,

Okay your WordPress blog is now available at:

You can access your administrative login at:
Username: admin
Password: e4e4ec

Pertinent database information from your wordpress/wp-config.php file
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'johnsblog_wordpress');    // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'johnsblog_john');     // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'xyxxl0718'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');    // 99% chance you won't need to change
this value

// You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a
unique prefix
$table_prefix  = 'wp_';   // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
