Is there a order of installation when building a Splunk Cluster?

I have detailed links and documents about the specific items, but it's difficult to determine the order of configuration & installation.
I'm using http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.2/DistSearch/SHCdeploymentoverview as a reference.

Splunk cluster deployment order:
1. indexer cluster - master
2. indexer cluster - peers
3. search head cluster - Deployer
4. search head cluster - Members
5. search head cluster - Captain
6. integrate search cluster into indexer cluster
7. connect search heads to search peers

Thank you! -Sean

I think the order will be
1) Indexer Master
2) Peer Nodes (Indexer)
3) Search Peer Nodes with Indexer Clusterring Enabled and pointing to Master Node
4) Search Head Deployer
5) Enable Search Head Clustering on each Search head Peer
6) Choose Search Head Captain

You may also add a Deployment Server for pushing configurations on UF /HF.
