This is a basic guide aimed at beginners who have just received a Raspberry Pi / Pi-face and want to know how to set it up, I felt the need to write this up after receiving a PiFace and not be able to find any decent documentation on how to set it up. I hope this helps and let me know if you have any comments. You should be able to have the PiFace setup and working within an hour.

Connect your SD card to your PC, open up Win32DiskImager and browse for the image file you just downloaded (you will need to unzip it first), select your SD card drive letter from the device drop down list and then press write to write the image to your disk.
