From the "Site Map" on the left side of the installation form select the pages you want to appear on your menu. You can click the down arrow to select pages as many levels deep as your site has.

Once you have selected the pages for your menu Drag and Drop them in the right side menu box so they are in the order you want them to display. It's simple!
