As a newb myself asking really basic (read: dumbass) questions all the time, I would really love to see this happen. I hate asking the forum when the search function doesn't pan out, but sometimes there aren't a lot of options. There are a number of great examples on this site of indices/FAQs to go on, although many I've seen tend to be model specific.

Step 3 -- Ruminate a few more days
Step 4 -- Phone a friend
Step 5 -- Post the question
Btw to those of you willing to field the newb questions, many thanks for all the help so far
