Can you provide pointers on point-to-point 2.4GHz radio link installation and planning?

Can you provide pointers on point-to-point 2.4GHz radio link installation and planning, including budget calculations that factor parameters such as antenna gain, cable loss, transmit power and receiver sensitivity?
Here are several references that can help you learn about radio link planning, the factors that influence link design, and how to calculate a link budget (i.e., the power needed to get from here to there, given transmitter output power, antenna gain, cable and connector loss, freespace path loss, and receiver sensitivity):
