Hi Tim, there are no dumb questions, only dumb answers.  :-)

Please feel free to ask anything you need here.  The people in this list
are culturally incapable of not helping. We've all been infected by
the cultural meme of Open Source.  :)

Thats quite a list.  My first recommendation is to stop by 
http://www.tldp.org and look at the listing of "How To" documents.

These documents are not reference manuals, they are actual descriptions
of exactly "How To" use/configure various resources on Linux.

Which of the above problems is your most critical? (or perhaps we should
tackle the easiest one first.. ).

Jargon file, abrgd.: The September that never ended. On the Internet,
every September's freshmen influx got their first accounts and, not
knowing how to post/email, always made a nuisance of themselves. Usually
they were trained in a few months. But in September 1993, AOL users
became able to post, overwhelming the capacity to acculturate them; to
those who recall the period before, this triggered a decline in the
quality of online communications. Syn. eternal September.
