Sounds like a sensible idea to me...

A better idea IMO would be for the install process to include adding your sources similar to how it's done when you first use Ember Media manager.

Still I think something like a tour through all the important parts of XBMC would be nice for any first time users. This way you see where you can add/remove even more sources (if you already added some during installation), how to change your settings, where to get addons and install a new skin, how to call up the context menu and so on.
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

Agree. A "Add your movie/series/music folder" during initial installation would do the trick.
Personally i dont recall having any problems at all when i started using XBMC but i can see that a lot of user struggles a bit with this. The best advise are, and have always been, RTFM.
XBMC: would you like to add media to XBMC now?
XBMC: Could you please show me where your movies/series/music are located
User: "..browsing to folders"
XBMC: Great, thx. Would you like me to fetch information about your media from the internet and add it to your library, depending on the size of your collection this could take a while?
User: Oh my, that would be nice
