[bug#40648] [PATCH] Add subsections to the Binary Installation section

From: Steven vanZyl
Subject: [bug#40648] [PATCH] Add subsections to the Binary Installation section
Date: Wed, 15 Apr 2020 15:52:10 -0400

Break the Binary Installation section of the manual into two
subsections: Installation Script, and Manual Installation. With an
example for the Installation Script.

This serves to highlight the existence of the installation script as
the recommended way of installing Guix and provide an example of its
usage for users.

Additionally altered an example systemd command in the Manual
Installation section to turn two commands into one by using the --now
flag instead of calling start then enable.

This is my first patch submission to Guix so I am rather new at this.
If I have made any mistakes please let me know and I will endeavor to
correct them as soon as possible.
