Where is best to post - newbie or redhat?

Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask.

Basically I was wondering if I have a question, whether it is best to ask here in the Newbie forum or in the Redhat forum? (I'm using Redhat and am definitely a newbie!)

well it depends....
if its a redhat specific question, then obviously redhat, but if its a problem installing a program or whatever, then go to the newbie or software fourm, etc, be the judge

I guess I'm such a newbie that it's a bit difficult to tell. eg. I had a problem with lilo.conf, but it turned out I was doing the wrong thing as RedHat uses grub by default. As such, I should have asked in Redhat but asked in Newbie section.

Hopefully readers don't get too upset with me posting in the wrong place?!
