    Sites and Templates

    Use the top level site as a "front page" for rolling up information held elsewhere dependant on the user. Use the Audience capability in Sharepoint for information targeting (eg News).

    Other sub-areas:

    Think about how you catagorize things.... for navigation and site layout. Generally, it is not a good idea to have lots of subsites under one site. Branch it out.

    Read and enjoy... and beware of the gotchas!
