Since you've joined TUG, you should know about their home page, and  
the links there.  In particular, the "Getting Started" link gives you  
some pointers to basic doc and tutorial discussions.

The list is a great place to get specific questions answered, but you  
should do a little research before asking: the FAQ (again, a TUG  
link) and Google are usually very helpful.

And a request: if you can, configure your mailer to send plain text  
to mailing lists like this one.  Fancy formatting of mail usually  
produces crappy results on systems whose configuration doesn't match  
yours; and more importantly, all that fancy formatting information  
just fouls up the archive for those who search for answers there.
