Part of the problem might be that the instruction to specify -location
is in the "Downloading" section. I would suggest moving it (essentially
verbatim) to the "Installing" section, preceding the less-important
information about the -gui option.
One other (unrelated) suggestion: In the rsync command for people who
want to mirror the whole directory, most people will want to exclude
mactex* in addition to 2008.
