Welcome to our community! My name is Tom, also known here as HD116. I joined Home Depot as a Millwork associate and fielded this question many times. Installation of prehung doors has come up many times here in the community as well.
The fact of the matter is that interior pre-hung double doors are installed in the same manner as single doors. Due to their size, care should be taken in handling during the installation process. Avoid "racking" (allowing the door to come out of "square") of the door in it's frame as this could cause the corners to separate.
Two community members, GrueMaster and Home Depot expert Newf combined to make a great post on the installation process in late 2010. While this post deals with the finishing of an unfinished opening and then installation of the door, it is a great overview of the process and includes information on tools and materials required, tips, and even a photo and link to an installation video.
To view this information, simply click here.
I am sure that you will find all of the information you need for a successful installation. If you do have any further questions feel free to post them here.
