The trouble with helping beginners is where to start. You could presume nothing, or something, about their experience. Linux compounds this more by people having to start from scratch. i.e. With new Windows victims they don't usually have to figure out how to install the OS, they've (usually) had more of the hard work done for them. My first foray into Linux was from one of those small books about the size of the Readers Digest with install discs, that are commonly sold in newsagents. I'd recommend one of them as a good starting point. The first one or two that I read had quite a few "getting started" guides with useful details that questions about similar things would usually get you a RTFM command response on a mailing list or newsgroup. -- (Currently running FC4, occasionally trying FC5.)
