Hello all.

Regarding the howto-suggestion. I concur with Gerwin Pfab. It should be
written for real newbies, kept free from assumptions of the user's
rtems-specific knowlegde, as well as from implicit understading of
rtems-specific terms.

If someone would manage it, it would be great if it was possible (for
newbies as well as for experienced users) to submit a description of the
common problems and solutions they've experienced. Then the howto would grow
as experience was gained - but again, it should be restrained to information
relevant to newcomers.

Any other ideas?

This is a very good idea, (that would have helped me a lot when I
started RTEMsing 2 years ago :-)). Such HOWTOs can really lower the
startup problems for new users.
