Arch Linux WHERETO

I coined the term WHERETO to refer to a collection of links to Linux HOWTOs.  I've written up a preliminary draft of an Arch Linux WHERETO and placed it in the wiki:

http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arc … %20WHERETO

Comments and feedback welcome. Feel free to add to it or to edit any descriptions. I would like to keep it relatively clean, that is, no links to stupid documents, and few links to documents that say the same thing. If you know of a link that better describes how to do things than one of the links in the WHERETO, by all means replace it. If you have links to topics not covered, add it. If you've read some of the HOWTOs listed (I only gave some of them a cursory glance) and find they aren't terribly useful, remove the links.

Ideally, this will be the document people go to first when they need help. The last section of the WHERETO describes other places to look for help. I made sure to emphasize the need to *search*. smile

Added Linux Loadable Kernel Module HOWTO link to the kernel section. Part 13 (Induvidual Modules) of this document is probably most interesting for newbies.

Re: Arch Linux WHERETO

Sequence of events, (tongue in cheek)
for an Arch Wanabee, seems to be Read Distrowatch, grab Arch from download page, rejoice in your newfound leetness, fubar the install, go look for help in the forums.

wink

Maybe put a link to this on the iso download page and suggest folks make use of it while Arch is downloading. Could go some way to oiling the machine
