Talking Good Tutorials?

I'm just curious if anyone knows of some good documentationi on-line for RedHat 7.1, how to do pretty average things like install new programs, setup a basic network, install a printer, sound config, etc... I know there's plenty of MAN pages & etc... included with RedHat but I find it a little tedious to read for an extended period of time, Thanks!!

To get some general non Red Hat specific info/tutorial take a look at
They have lots of documentation on linux in general.
Some find the HOW-TO docs fine.
If you would like to get some in-depth knowledge of how linux work
I recommend you to read some of their "guides", they are more like
books dealing with certain aspects of linux, as networking, administration...

A good tutorial section is a definite TODO for LinuxQuestions. If anyone would like to start writing one (or more ) let me know. I will get the backend done as soon as I can.

hey... i suggested this a while ago. it might be best if you could let mods or other regular members (like me) post tutorials as they get written.
