A couple ideas:

1.  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Printing - seems self-explanatory, but
on the other hand I can't tell whether it was intended to hold user help
content.  That's what I'd search for if I were a new user.

2.  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAQ - catchall for some common
problems, but again, this may be too "weedy" for that page.

3.  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/FC6Common - in the area called
"Less Common Issues," possibly?  There is also a "F7Common" page for the
upcoming release.

Does a knowledge base system get easier to implement with Plone as the
engine for our web site?  I'm pretty sure it does, which would make
one-off issues much easier for users to enter and docs people to edit
into publication shape in small, bite-sized chunks that could entice new
Docs contributors to help out.
