Best place for new users?

Hi, I'm new to this list. I post lots on the Open discuss lists, but I am excited to post to this list.

I just met some of your folks at Linux World Expo SF yesterday. I give away free computers with SuSE Linux Pro 8.2 to non-profits in the San Francisco Bay Area. It would be great if I could send folks who are new to a good emailing list in case they have tech support questions. Is this a good place to send them? If not, where?

This place is definitely a place you should send them. There are also places like SuSE specific forums, but it seems like there's not as much activity on most of them I've seen, such as:

Sure, send them our way.
Some times there may be a better forum. If, for example, they have a
question about horde, they should use horde's mailing list. But alot of
programs do not have a mailing list or it is hard to find. This is a great
place to come for help, even if there is a list more specific to their question.

Welcome to LQ Christian. This is a great place to send people. A lot of helpful people here. If you happen to know anyone from SuSE you might get a SuSE forum started here. They just want someone who represents the distro to come in and help out.
