I think a good area to start would be disk partitioning. I've tought a fair
share of people how to install linux and the area they stumble on the most
is partitioning. I know this is a really basic topic, but going from an o/s
like winblows where disk partitioning is seldom spoken of, to an o/s where
proper partitions are critical can be quite confusing and frustrating.
I also think that someone should discuss the relationship between Physical
memory and Swapped memory. Alot of people make a swap partition not knowing
how large they should really make it. Sure you can make your swap partition
1 meg and linux will boot fine, but how will things work differently if you
have 192Mb Physical, and only 1Mb Swap, or 8Mb Physical, and 192 Swap.
Its little but it can greatly affect the operation of linux, and people need
to know this when they install linux...well thats what i think anyway.

I would be happy to do a talk but have no idea what topic to choose.
Any requests from those people out there new to list? Any requests from
those not so new to the list? ;)
