I agree with the "one go" concept.  I have a personal problem with the
"later" option, because, at the time of installation, I either think
that I won't need the option, or that the path to the install is obvious
so I don't need to write it down.  Of course, when I do need it, that
obvious path has somehow become obscure and I do a lot of thrashing to
succeed with the follow-up.
