Everyone starts somewhere though. I know that people like Matt Dillon could tell someone a thousand times more about the workings of the FreeBSD filesystem, but when someone asks how they should partition their drive I can certainly offer an opinion. Between the drives I've done myself and the many times I've seen such a topic raised on one of the lists I feel confident enough to answer fairly accruately.

The thing is to find things you know and watch out for those questions. Whatever you're playing with right now will be frsh in your head so when someone asks you may be able to answer quickly and with enough information to help.

The thing with FreeBSD is that there are a lot of very talented people involved in the project. Someone will always be able to do things better than you, but that shouldn't stop you from helping. If you answer the simple questions it means the big guns have more time to answer the questions we can't, or write the new bit of code that everyone's been waiting for.
