Our HOWTO collection contains short tutorials that help you step through some of the common (but potentially confusing) tasks users may need to accomplish, that do not quite rise to the level of requiring more structured training materials. Items here may explain a procedure to follow, or present a "best practices" formula that we think may be helpful.
