Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After reading one post, the OP seemed to be trying to explain what later seemed like a good idea to me. Why not have a catalog of error messages that people find or get and cross reference that with the solution that was found?
It would be a lot of work, and perhaps an entirely different web site would be required, as someone would need to provide solutions for various error messages. This would help the Linux Community, as people would be able to go to one place to look up error messages, as well as provide solutions that they have found. The idea being that it would not be a post forum, but only have the error message, the reasons that errror message happens, and the solution. No more wasting hours and hours reading through posts if you know what the error messsages are!
People who are stuck with Linux usually try to search based on the error messages, if they can find them. By providing solutions based on the error messages, you can help to alleviate some of the difficulties found by the Linux user.
