Google helps most of the time, but the problems that have you staring at the screen for hours, giving up, sleeping for eight hours, then staring at the screen again - those are the ones this is meant to address. Once I knew what the problems were, I knew enough to be able to google for them. But if you've only got a vague "feel" for the problem, google is useless unless it's a very common problem.
What I'd like is a simple bulleted list. The most common solutions would be at the top, whereas the rare and unusual would be down at the bottom. That way you can work your way through "Did you chmod 755?", "Is the first line '#!/usr/bin/perl'?" all the way down to "Are you using version x.xxxx of perl on a Redhat 6.2 system with packages x,y,z installed?"
