There are no stupid questions. However some are basic enough that you 
should be able to work them out.

given resources here are limited (unless you plan to pay us for support) 
then I think its reasonable that you work some of the basic stuff out 
for yourself.

If you at least show that you've made a valiant attempt ("I tried XYZ 
but it failed...") then you are more likely to get a response.

People here DO like to help newbies who lack even the basic knowledge 
expected by the book, but the same people do expect the new users to 
exhibit some ability to learn for themselves.
