Lion for Dummies: Setup?

I recommended that my father get a macbook pro. Now he has the machine but I've been very disappointed with how many problems he has had with LION!

The latest issue is with Safari "canceling the shut down" and when you want to quit Safari you can't.

MY QUESTION IS:

How do you guys recommend I set Lion up for a beginner user. How do you do it?

Thanks for the help.
