Simulate ONTAP 8.2 Step-by-Step Installation Guide "simple version"

I went back to the drawing board to create new step-by-step vsim install guides for 8.2 GA.

Guide 1: "edu" is for the educational community to help students (or anyone) quickly up to speed on clustered Data ONTAP is a simple 2-node cluster configuration.

Guide 2: "nau" is for those wanting to perform NetAppU clustered Data ONTAP Administration course exercises on there laptop or desktop. It will explain how to configure a 2-node cluster, with SSDs for FlashPools. Optionally, there are steps to create a single-node cluster for use as a SnapMirror and/or SnapVault target.
