have checked out wiki's, and all seem a bit too advanced for people I know.
I had in mind a very simple tutorial with pictures of each step of the 
that windows users could check out before installing. They are used to
clicking on "next" for the windows install.To add to what I have already 
I live in a very small country town(620), and am still waiting for 
another Linux user
to move here :-) (Nearest linux user I have physical contact with is 40 
miles away),
and am getting ready for the Hoary CD's to arrive, and start to do my 
bit to indoctrinate the locals,
 (am buying one to get me going, cheaper for me than to use fuel to go 
and get a copy)
but want to be for armed, as any problems will come straight back to me.
My thoughts were to write a lot of help to CD and hand
it out with the Hoary CD, hoping to save me headaches later :-)

Am a relative newbie myself, getting to old to retain too much,
and was going to do this in html, best for windows
users to access, would be more than happy for anyone to use anything I 
have done,
anyone is welcome to copy and change/modify, add to wiki, but don't know 
me writing docs,  would hate to be responsible for breaking the wiki. 
Still getting my head around CSS.
