Add a "quick" install guide (that uses snf-deploy)

* Add a new guide that installs Synnefo on one physical node
  using the `snf-deploy' tool
* Rename the "Quick Admin's Guide" to just "Admin's Guide" since
  it's not that quick any more

Quick Installation Guide
This is the Synnefo Quick Installation guide.
It describes how to install the whole Synnefo stack on one (1) physical node,
in less than 10 minutes. The installation uses the snf-deploy deployment tool
and installs on a physical node that runs Debian Squeeze. After successful
installation, you will have the following services running:
* Identity Management (Astakos)
* Object Storage Service (Pithos)
* Compute Service (Cyclades)
* Image Service (part of Cyclades)
* Network Service (part of Cyclades)
and a single unified Web UI to manage them all.
To install Synnefo the only thing you need is a Debian Squeeze Base System that
has access to the public Internet.
Installation of snf-deploy
First of all we need to install the snf-deploy tool. To do so please add the
following line in your ``sources.list`` file:
.. code-block:: console
deb unstable/
Then run:
.. code-block:: console
# apt-get update
# apt-get install snf-deploy
Synnefo installation
Now that you have `snf-deploy` successfully installed on your system, to install
the whole Synnefo stack run:
.. code-block:: console
# snf-deploy all --autoconf
This might take a while depending on the physical host you are running on, since
it will download everything that is necessary, install and configure the whole
If the following ends without errors, you have successfully installed Synnefo.
Accessing the Synnefo installation
If you want to access the installation from the same machine it runs on, just
open a browser and point to:
The <domain> is automatically set to ``hostname -d``. If this doesn't return
anything, it is set to ``synnefo.deploy.local``. A local BIND is already set up
by `snf-deploy` to serve all FQDNs.
If you want to access the Synnefo installation from a remote machine, please
first set your nameservers accordingly by adding the following line as your
first nameserver in ``/etc/resolv.conf``:
.. code-block:: console
nameserver <IP>
The <IP> is the public IP of the machine that you deployed Synnefo on, and want
to access.
Once you see the Login screen, go ahead and login using:
| username:
| password: lala
which is the default user. If you see the welcome screen, you have successfully
installed Synnefo on a single node.

* cyclades.synnefo.deploy.local

* cms.synnefo.deploy.local
Using the installation
You should be able to:
* Spawn VMs from the one public Image that is already registered
* Upload files on Pithos
* Create Private Networks
* Connect VMs to Private Networks
* Upload new Images
* Register the new Images
* Spawn VMs from your new Images
* Use the kamaki command line client to access the REST APIs
