Yeah, it's a permanent problem. Every day new users come to gromacs
and every new user asks nearly the same questions. And nearly every
user is given the same answers by Justin  et al. :)

Maybe, it's worth to try a something like forum (for example free
phpBB engine, parallel with this gmx-users list) to categorize
questions and answers by topic? Of course, it is almost the same as
searching list archives and browsing wiki but perhaps it would be a
bit more convenient.

What do you think about, gromacs site maintainers?
