welcome to LQ.
Note that each forum has a short blurb about what it is for. You posted in Linux-Newbie, which says:
Linux - Newbie This forum is for members that are new to Linux.
Just starting out and have a question? If it is not in the man pages or the how-to's this is the place!
What I would do is browse around a bit and see the kinds of questions posted. For non-technical, there is the non-*nix "general". I'd like to say anything goes there, but that's not quite true.
