Chapter Numbering

I'm debating whether to begin numbering chapters at the intro,
or the subsequent chapter. I've got a pile of guides here from other
companies, and almost all of them begin after the intro section. I
did that for my last guide, but I wonder whether that invites readers
to completely skip the intro.

How do you approach this issue, as small as it is?

Thanks,
Mike
