There really isn't an automated installer.  Although it's missing
some bits and pieces, above site has pretty thorough documentations,
at least it'll get you started.  I'm afraid that it may not be "dummy"
friendly though, but give it a try.

Well, parisc linux is still in the works.  Many features are missing
at the moment, so I don't think it's in compare-able (is this a word?)
