Setup wizard improvements

We’ve updated the styling of the setup wizard to make text more legible, hierarchy and user selections appear more distinct, certain links open in new tabs, and various components feel more cohesive with the rest of the app.

We’ve also overhauled several setup sections with better organization, additional steps, more images, clarified help text, and additional troubleshooting tips to help new users solve any issues more quickly.

And finally, we’ve added an entirely new section to the setup wizard to INSTALL FARMBOT OS. Steps include selecting which Raspberry Pi is included in your kit, downloading the correct version of FarmBot OS, downloading and using Raspberry Pi Imager, and inserting the microSD card back into the Pi.
