Basically, I'm at a huge disadvantage b/c I don't understand ANY of the terms or tools.  I'm

teaching/tutoring, I have to say no one out there seems to know how to assume a user knows 
nothing but is still capable of learning. Too much is assumed in all the materials I find.

Carl, this is an endemic problem in _all_ software documentation.  I don't know whether it's worse 
in this area than others, but it is in any case horribly difficult to remember what it is like not 
to know anything.  We don't observe the steps by which we come to know something; we are too busy 
struggling to understand.
