Are detailed install and config manuals available for version 7?

I downloaded and have attempted to install OpenERP twice but have run into issues each time because the documentation available is only for version 6 and there are many significant differences.

I would like to be able to download full documentation for each module that describes in detail the installation and configuration. In other words, I want to become an OpenERP expert but I need somewhere to start.

A guided walk through tutorial video\presentations of every step needed to install and configure a fully functional business (including multiple companies, incoming and outgoing email, accounting, sales, POS, project, purchasing, warehouse, manufacturing and human resources) would be extremely beneficial, even if it came at a modest price.

Official documentation for v7 has been released[1]

Have you checked on the trunk documentation[2]?

Most of documentation provided by partners and contributors, isn't yet ready. However you can refer mostly to 6.1 documentation. If it helps you the french community made some useful documents[3].

For modules, some of them have explanations in there description on how to install and configure. I also added an overview of modules (but 6.1) in the link below.

Furthermore, you will find on help.openerp.com some valuable information.

I will try to find information in the truck documents. This doesn't seem to be a very good source of learning how to use the product but rather how to develop for it. Unfortunately the french documentation doesn't help me at all. I will check out the openerp-possibilities docuement

Maybe this helps you more? http://doc.openerp.com/v6.1/book/index.html. It is bether to use 6.1 doc than 6.0. In your question your ae talking about version 6 so I'm not sure you took the version 6.1 doc.

And here are the release notes to know what is new in v7. This is more about usability.
