"Introduction to..." Documents
   This week we've created a new document category at the LDP, beginning
   with five documents from Jenn Vesperman of LinuxChix. Jenn's documents
   are introductions to basic computing subjects, and unlike most LDP
   documents they are not unique to Linux. In fact, they do not cover the
   details of any operating system or application, but instead they focus
   on the underlying concepts. They should be very helpful for people who
   are newbies not only to Linux but to computing itself. We hope to
   publish more documents like these in the future.
