Hi all, i just joined LUG a few days ago...

If anyone does have/make a document like this i would find it very usefull as 
i have just started a group that gets school kids (im one myself) into 
advanced computing and, in the end, linux. (Ive allready got one person using 
it :) ) A document like that would be fantsatic.
