Maybe a HOWTO glossary would be a good "intermediate" solution here... 
ideally, all the HOWTOs would be written perfectly, but that isn't going
to happen realistically (or certainly not for a while)... so perhaps just
a simple glossary of things like "eth0" and "ext2fs"...

(I'm new to the list, so forgive me if I'm spouting nonsense or, worse,
repeating things that have already been said :-)
