How is this on topic here? If you didn't have 23 other posts I would have assumed you were a spammer and deleted your entire account...

Yes. This is related with the below Question:

I don't want to do those steps 1 by 1 but as a whole like the author did the thing...

You can go ahead and Delete my account if you want but I never give up the way I want to do the things as the author does on the Book.

P.S:
I don't want to learn freePBX. As I said before I am not ready to Quit learning Asterisk just because it is a bit harder than other tools... I believe in the following Quote:

There seems to be two options:
  1. Learn some Linux distro, properly. Then learn Asterisk and how to install Asterisk to that Linux distro.
  2. Learn some Linux distro that already has Asterisk. Then learn Asterisk.

Ethics are actually quite personal (IMO).
Try to think why.
Why is this (book published) thing, for me, not working?
Blindly (without understanding why) following a book's description is (IMO) dumb.
Skipping bits, is often worse.

So yes, IMO it is wrong, mainly because you are.
