All of these are negotiable in doing. I would like you alls
opinions on these topics. I suspect links to them can be 
put here: "http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/". In the correct
section.
What do you all think the biggest concern with new users are?
I've had a few comments so far from about 3 people. I would 
like some more ideas on the subject.


http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos

####CentOS Installation####

That is missing on the page! 

1. Burning the CentOS cdrom.
   1b.http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/CD_burning_howto.html
      Section 4.1 is wrong according to my version of Roxio, I
      have version 5. As for the rest I can't account for. 
      I am not on my Windows machine. 
      Best idea I can come up with is to use the Trial Versions
      of them. I do have acces to a few older versions. Doing the 
      MD5sum under Windows with a GUI and also the cd buring.

####Package Management####

1 .Has nothing on Using and Installing Yumex.
 
####Network Section####

1. Has nothing on Seting up a Diskless Client with CentOS.
1b. This would be a command line tutorial as the Fedora Core 6 GUI Tool 
    is broken? Atleast it want work right for me yet. Haven't give up on
it yet 
    though.
2. Network Installation as in Modem and Internet ie, NIC Card.
   Wireless laptop access?

####E-Mail####

1. Has nothing on Setting up something like Evolution 
   or Slypheed Claws To get Emai1l. Also backing up
   your email and restoring.

####Backups####

1. Maybe some type of back up to cdrom or dvd rw?
2. User "beginner" says that long script scares them.
3. Maybe a real short *.gz and then a cdrecord command to burn to
   the cd/dvd rom. It would need a limitting factor as in size for the
backup.
   As in 650MBs for cdrom and 3.5 GBs for dvdrom. 
   What comes to my mind is the one that Comes with Debian and
   Ubuntu.

####Misc Section####

1. How to extract *.iso files images in CentOS. Can be a GUI
   tutorial.
2. Creating pdf files from within OpenOffice. Err Adobe reader
   for CentOS. Adobe Flash. Java for Fire Fox?
