Yet of all the email on this topic, nobody pointed out this most  
excellent article.

Of the many problems with the man page system, this is one that has  
always been a torn in my side.  I feel that man pages should have a  
"getting started" section, even if it only points to articles like the  
one you suggested.

I agree.  It's a shame that the first place that people turn for help  
(the man pages) doesn't refer to it.
