    Preface

    Warning:
    There are several all-in-one "packaged" "bundles" of Zen Cart scattered around the internet, but none of those are endorsed by Zen-Cart.com, as we believe that the manual installation is the best choice to have your system secure and optimized and so you know *exactly* what *you* have put onto your site.
