After some fumbling around I finally realized that 'files' contains
the files ... this could be made more clear, though I'm not sure how! 
Maybe simply put it far to the LEFT, just after Summary.  In other
words, the files are the most important thing, and you have put them
at the end of the list.

I had no trouble with the download or unpacking.  But:

! LaTeX Error: File `pxfonts.sty' not found.

I would suggest that you include this in the package.

A second suggestion is to always provide the document as html by using
latex2html (which you can find at ctan).  This would allow a *real*
beginner to get a leg up.
