    I also suggest the document should be imported into the wiki.
    OpenOffice has an 'export to mediawiki' function - probably it will read the .doc and export to mediawiki txt.

    Does OpenOffice have a command-line version now? ;-)

    yes, you can create a macro so that it can be used to convert files from .doc on the command line. antiword is probably easier.

    Why would I install openoffice (or indeed a GUI) on a server?

    I doubt you'll need the 'noob guide' either

    Why would you be reading the noobie guide on the server?
    How would you get to edugeek to get the file without a browser, which you need a gui for?
    Why have a color screen on the server if the command line is in black and white?
    Why have a mouse attached when you can do everything using a keyboard?
    Why am I wasting my time, writing this...

    You give people a little something and this is the thanks you get

    using lynx,links, wget

    Why have a color screen on the server if the command line is in black and white?
    that has been fixed years ago. they are in colour now

    Why have a mouse attached when you can do everything using a keyboard?
    so you can copy and paste. thats difficult on the CLI without a mouse.

    Why am I wasting my time, writing this...
    exactly - you should be updating the wiki with your excellent howto

    You give people a little something and this is the thanks you get
    I appreciate it.
