What totorials would newbs want?


Hi,
As you possibly saw, I tried to make a collection of tutorials and howto`s. The targets are unix/linux users, mostly for new users.I now ask you what other tutorials should be included? I know that they are many... but focus on the most important ones first..
Any suggestions appreciated.

well... we tried to be more general... you would realize the size of the site if we explained how to install linux on computers from 486 to p4's.. (it's the same )
Please be more general with your suggestions.. something that will work on all systems...
regards

How to uninstall software that's allready installed on a system.

For example, how to uninstall openssl older version if installed a new version.

noted.. DavidiaN.. slackware has something like pkgtool that handles packages... if i'm not mistaken.. it's not the only distro that has something like this.., will be taken into consideration ..if I find another way
keep it coming!

Installing Java seems to be a common question. Perhaps a detailed explanation of where to get it, how to actually install it, and what files to edit to set the environment variables.

Hanging out in linux rooms, we're usually inundated with winmodem questions. Dialup is alive and well.

Samba. The transistion from a windows desktop to a linux one (Mandrake, Suse) isn't that hard. But configuring samba after being used to rightclick > share everything is a nightmare for some people.
