Static Files doc improvement

|Has patch:||yes||Needs documentation:||no|
|Needs tests:||no||Patch needs improvement:||no|
On the following page: http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/howto/static-files/
If you follow the directions and use /media/ as the path to serve static files under you'll get the error:
"Permission denied: /var/lib/python-support/python2.5/django/contrib/admin/media/"
Which is because "/media/" is also being used for settings.ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX. A few first timers have run into this and gotten stuck so it's probably worth noting in the docs.
My suggestion would be a one liner at the end of the "How to do it" section stating "Be careful not to use the same path as your ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX (which defaults to /media/) as this will overwrite your URLconf entry.".
