Manual: a few tweaks to the installation chapter. (1) Applied FS#8540 by Marc Guay - Move some warnings about MSC mode (and similar) which were now hidden below the automated install description to the beginning of the installation chapter. (2) Change the 'enable voice support' description to account for the fact that the voice files are now provided in zips with the proper file structure.
