Clarifying README (#590)

Made two small changes to the README.adoc that will help first-time users. First, I added notifications that the user may need to edit their PATH env variable after installing Rust. Second, I added a 'Hello world!' name tag to the Kusama Canary Network connect command so that new users will be better able to find their node on telemetry.
