I saw that page by Sankarshan. That is too detailed for what I'm
thinking about. Actually all that would have been a chapter or two at
the end of the booklet. I was thinking of some quick DIYs like:
*1. Installing Fedora*
*2. Some cool Applications in Fedora*
a. Lets Browse the Internet (Firefox)
b. Watch movies with Totem.
c. Moving around with nautilus
d. Official Liberty with LibreOffice
3. You want more Applications?*
a. What are Repositories?
b. Using PackageKit
c. The Terminal is your Friend
4. More Cool Stuff*
b. Wow! It sees my Cam
c. I'm a GIMP Artist
d. Chat and Mail
*5. Enough Fun for one day (shutdown)*
*6. Inside Fedora
*condense Sankarshans outline here
Something like that, but drafted like a quick *how-to* guide to get the
end-users down to the business of exploring Fedora. It should have more
of graphics .... then text explaining steps to achieve the illustrations
on the Graphic images.

repository), where we could create an session, and edit together one
file and save and format it as we need. This software is not really
capable to do DTP work, but we could fully edit till the end the full
