Talking Much Needed!

I think that all of you are correct. But, I might point out that each of you seem to have alot of experience with the software and maybe going way past alot of peoples heads. Maybe I am trying to be too simplistic, but much more basic questions are whats needed. As a newbie to Linux (RH9) I think that the most important question might revolve around setting up your first system (i.e., generic installation, basic configuration of hardware, and how to make it somewhat secure) This might include proper procedures for partitioning during startup (the instructions given during that time are not very clear for someone who hasn't ever seen Linux and have no idea what /, /etc, /root even are). It might also be good to givve some generic help with config floppy's, cdrom, etc. You get my point.
Most of the people who are just starting out are not going to be concerned with how to compile a kernal. We can't even spell kernell, or is it colonel? Oh well, I hope that I haven't offended any, but for those of us that are JUST starting out some VERY BASIC help is what's needed. Thanks for listening!
