We need some help with how to install the more tricky programs and drivers (eg the driver for our wireless card).  We want to know about how to use the terminal properly and would like to find out about the best Unix apps available.  We would ultimately like to learn some rudimentary programming skills.  We have good equipment, a wireless home network and a 4 megabit ADSL line.  Windows and Mac machines are also available if we need them.

Congratulations! This is an awesome request and you should be commended
for taking this step!

That being said, however, I just don't have the human bandwidth to help
you out (Sorry!)
