Maybe there could be a pseudo-interactive page:
First page says "which operating system do you want to install on?"
and gives a list of links as above (you might also want ubuntu,
mandriva and "other linux"), then you get a page where you can refine
that choice (eg for Debian you'd get options for woody, sarge,
testing, unstable, experimental etc),

That link will take you to a list of emacs versions that the selected
operating system includes, plus options for "emacs21 installed by
hand" and "emacs cvs installed by hand" [and similarly for xemacs].
you could also have a "AUCTeX recommends you use: ..." option for
people who dont already have emacs installed

Then you need to choose which auctex version you want ("download
auctex 11.99 from sourceforge", "use existing Debian auctex-11.86-4
package", "get CVS vesion of auctex"),

then you get to a page of detailed instructions for a specific
auctex/emacs/operating system combination.
