Default Hotows and FAQ

Old bsdforums.org had some really excellent threads for nOObs like CUPS thread or for instance thread about digital cameras. Either the admin should transfer those threads here or 10-20 basic topic for n00bs should be covered in the new howtos. Of course they can be found all over the net but it never hurts to repeat them.

Personally, I would not mind writing down generic (applicable to any BSD flavour) Howtos for X server configuration, LPD, CUPS, SANE, Digital Cameras and couple other really basic things for desktop users like mounting file systems or burning CD/DVD. That would give a head start to a n00b.

Copying stuff from BSDForums is problematic, see this announcement...

Sorry, I should have had read the rules of bsdforums over before posting the suggestion. Those rules are truly in contrast to the spirit of BSD licence.
The second suggestion is still valid. 10-15 basic howtos should be written as soon as possible.

No problem.

Yes, we could do with some more guides, but the forums are 2 days old now so give it some time
