​​Do you mean the disk layout? That should happen automatically if there
are no choices.

Yes, ReaR will work best if used as intended.​

Therefore the best help would be to provide us a patch for the ReaR
homepage that adds missing documentation or hints where you would have
needed them to solve your problem.

https://github.com/rear/rear.github.com is the source of the ReaR homepage
and the easiest way to start is if you create yourself a Github account,
fork that repo, work on it and send us a pull request.

If you did not use Github before then you will find lots of tutorials on
the web.
are just some examples I found with 2 minutes searching.
