I guess we could always use more guides and how-tos. Maybe scan the
forums and attend the #haiku IRC channel [4] for FAQs, compare to the

the answers on haiku-doc. Similarly you could present your guides and
how-tos on the mailing list to get some feedback before submitting
them to the website. Or present your ideas first... You get the
