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.
