I checked the sites you suggest but they didn't get someone going -
too basic or way too much detail for the Givers of the G1G1 program.
It is about first impressions.
What To Do When You Get Your XO covered the topic well, even if there
were problems with the actual content - which is why it should be
public on the wiki.

I am not even going to go into the specific problems with that website
other than to say that some of the advice there was so bad it could
lead you to having permanent problems with the laptop. It was so bad I
found it offensive.
The leaflet the comes with XO has enough information to get you
started. including a URL for more information
Also you can find information at
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Getting_Started . In a school deployment
there would be some support at the early stages. The idea is for the
community to take part and share.
