Owner: changed from nielx to humdinger

Reassigning to humdinger since he generally maintains the guides in SVN.

It looks like yasm is indeed mentioned here:


already. So, it's likely that the SVN-based guide was simply forgotten at that time.

The whole installation business isn't part of the user guide anymore as that is targeted at "normal people" :)
All should be moved into the online guides section. I may look into that, but it's difficult to break it all down from the platform specific pages into general guides. Also, I can only verify the Linux part (with the limited knowledge I have of building things and Linux (I'm so happy to be almost 100% in Haiku...!)).
