These were only ideas for a target audience.

I think server questions and implementation Ideas would come under
"Implementing Linux in the classroom."

Questions like, "How do I get Linux to recognize my Modem?" , would fall

Of course I would expect that the charter would be posted on the SuSe site?
And would have directions to point people toward technical support?
