I believe a Getting Started manual should contain system requirements. As
for customer-specific information, I'm not sure these belong there, unless
perhaps if the client is a very large account. I don't see why a software
manufacturer should spend time to supply customer-specific information to
each of their clients, unless as I said, the client is very large and well
worth customizing your doc for.

My opinion only.
