[internetworkers] Large screen wall mounting

I recently purchased a 52" flat-panel TV that I want to wall mount. I
figure it goes something like: attach part of the mount to the TV,
attach the other piece to studs in the wall (using a stud finder that I
have), hang TV. Voila, right? Then I read in the Sony TV manual, in
three places, that they strongly recommend that the wall mounting "be
performed by Sony dealers or licensed contractors". I don't know if
this is cross-selling BS, overly protective product liability BS, or
actually good advice.
So has anyone mounted a TV on their wall or had a service do it for
them? I think I can handle what seems like a fairly simple task but I'm
concerned about ignorance on some important issue that could cause my
new TV to be damaged. But I'm also not looking forward to paying
$300-$400 to a service like Geek Squad if I can wisely avoid it.
Thank you in advance for any info you have on this subject.
