Free collection of Linux how to videos

Any one interested in helping create a free collection of Linux how to videos? Someone started a project on YouTube and did not follow up on the project. Why RTFM when you can use a easy to follow video? This would not replace irc channels or support forums, because some users would need interactivity.

I have made one video so far "how to use Linux to ID hardware".

I want all videos to be GPL so no one can them away from the community.

Sorry I did not see a good place to post this as it covers all areas of Linux

Its good you have taken an intiative. But the quality of video on youtube "generally" isnt good. To see the commands you type in either zoom in on it while creating the video or create high quality videos and host'em on your own website.
And keep the background black for better visibility, nothing leafy

Moreover, add a brief description to your post on what you are trying to achieve in the video. So that people dont have to view it and then try to analyse on what you were trying do ?!

Might take a look at the Puppylinux videos, some are rather old but most are pretty good.
