Well, I always try to encourage people to actually read the setup guide. Apparently it works.
And there is a web location file (similar to a Windows internet shortcut file) in my SheepShaver build downloads that points directly to the setup guide.
There are relatively many OSX visitors on this site and almost all of them on a Mac that cannot run 'classic' applications anymore. (One needs 10.4 or earlier on PPC to be able to run the Classic environment.)
These figures support what I gather from the forums: Many Mac users do not come here because they like to experiment with emulators, but because they actually need SheepShaver to be able to continue using software that does not run anymore on their new Macs. In the past years I have seen this shift in interest among Mac users in the forums. And it happened to myself: When I started playing with BasiliskII, SheepShaver and Mini vMac, it was out of curiosity and for nostalgic reasons. I did not need it for anything useful. But after upgrading to Leopard, and certainly now on Intel, I do need SheepShaver for one single 'classic' application, TeleFinder. I am sysop of an old (and now dying) TeleFinder BBS. It can be used with a web browser, but administrator and moderator tasks can only be done with TeleFinder.
