If you have an article, send it to us, or fill in the form on the
contribute page, link is from the main page.
As for the BLG being Red Hat only, that's only because the original
author, Owen Kelly, used Red Hat exclusively. It's rather unfortunate
that people have the impression that docs on other distributions aren't
welcome, they certainly are! On that note, is there anyone willing to
take over the BLG? Owen hasn't updated in a long time and his attention
has wandered elsewhere..
Hmm.. this all comes back to us having a nice web based administration
page for the site.. it'll get done. . .

Even to non newbies for Linux, many aspects (perhaps dial-in or samba or ipchains etc.) are daunting to get into with the current documentation (read HOWTO, read MAN, search net and hope you find the answers).

People should also be able to flag that they are working or willing to contribute to sections so that a team approach can be taken to pulling it together without risk of duplicating effort unneccessarily.

Is this something that would or would NOT be appreciated? If the Guide wishes to stick to RedHat only to keep things simple, fair enough but we should really be able to use our collective expertise to cover most anything going in here for all the major distros (at least any a new user _might_ use (SUSE, Mandrake, Corel)....not slackware or Linux From Scratch:-)
