I am (still) a newbie. I vote for a separate newbies group. My
experience with a superb users group (you may have been a member
yourself), BMUG, was that the techies monitored the newbies group & gave
priceless instruction. Gray Shaw stands out, but there were several
others whose names I've forgotten.
Linux is far more intimidating than classic Mac OS, and I formulating
questions to ask (I have not for a long time) and getting an answer that
worked for me, both hard. Therefore I think a newbies group would be
worth a try.
