Reorganise/partially rewrite the installation chapter to present Rockbox Utility as the
preferred installation method, and don't have important information only under manual install. For now retain manual install as a subsection. Patch originally in FS#9895 git-svn-id: svn://svn.rockbox.org/rockbox/trunk@20034 a1c6a512-1295-4272-9138-f99709370657
