not to be contrary, but i honestly think you have it backwards here.
i'd ask the question:

where do you first look for answers to any linux question you have?

if their answer doesn't include google groups, you have the wrong guy.

there's a basic knowledge that any serious admin needs, but beyond that,
google, google groups and good mailing lists are worth much more than a
lazy know-it-all.
