I do indeed appreciate that the packages are often *very* well 
documented, but I was referring in particular to documents written by 
people  who did not have much to do with the writing of the original 
program (although sometimes they are the same).

Perhaps Redhat packages these 'howtos' with the program, in which case 
full points to redhat.  I've never actually used a redhat system. (Does 
mandrake count as a redhat system?  I couldn't find the howtos there).

In any case, Linuxdoc.com has all the howtos.
