Documentation/HOWTO is indeed a very good place to start.

What I'm doing right now is basically reformatting my own notes,
emails I've written on the subject, pieces of other documents I've
written etc etc and trying to put them in the shape of a Getting
Started document. Perhaps getting that compiled into a reasonable
document in a few hours is a bit too optimistic, but I'll give it a
go, post what I have for review and we can take it from there. :-)

I'd love to read your document once it's ready for review.
