- More improvements by Morbus, Goba, TDobes et al:

Per TDobes' comments:

* INSTALL.txt corrected to use 4.3.3, not 4.33.
* .htaccess: removed allow_call_time_pass_reference. two confirmations that a) the setting was wrong in the first place, b) there were no adverse affects for the incorrect setting, c) the PHP docs say it is deprecated.
* .htaccess: removed short_open_tag. Running grep -r "<? " * across the entire directory tree of both core and contributions only brought up contributions and no core. I agree that the fuller form is better. The following contributions will need to be updated: modules/edit_template/edit_template.module, sandbox/garym/themes/marvin_2k/templates/page.tpl.php, sandbox/killes/compare.php, sandbox/paolino/import/click.php, themes/spreadfirefox/block.tpl.php. For error's sake, I also did a manual verification for "<?" (no space) across core and came up against nothing in addition to the above contribs.

Per Goba's comments:

* .htaccess: Moved session.auto_start back.
* sites/default/settings.php: Removed track_vars.

Per mailing list comments:

* INSTALL.txt: Added text about the files/ directory, creating it, and permissions.
* INSTALL.txt: Added an example of why Drupal requires cron (the search.module) in an attempt to justify why a crontab is a good, nay, required step.

And my own further analities:

* .htaccess: cleaned up some whitespace valleys (i hate 'em, hate 'em!) and fixed a few stray colons.
* settings.php: minor whitespace error.

5. CONFIGURE DRUPAL
You should consider creating a "files" subdirectory in your Drupal
installation directory. This subdirectory stores files such as
custom logos, user avatars, and other media associated with your
new site. The sub-directory requires "read and write" permission
by the Drupal server process. You can change the name of this
subdirectory at "Administer > Settings > File system settings".
You can now launch your browser and point it to your Drupal site.
Create an account and login. The first account will automatically

6. CRON TASKS
Many Drupal modules have periodic tasks that must be triggered by a
cron job. To activate these tasks, you must call the cron page by
visiting http://www.example.com/cron.php -- this will pass control
to the modules and the modules will decide if and what they must do.
