The installation guide at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/topics/install/#get-your-database-running doesn't tell you that you need to create database tables as part of the install (if you want to use a database). The closest it comes is when it says "If you plan to use Django’s manage.py syncdb command to automatically create database tables...". But that statement is meaningless to people who are new to Django. Unless I'm missing something, there is nothing in the instructions to tell you that creating the tables is a required step (for anyone who wants to use a database).
