Hello,
  I've a load of novices that know NOTHING about computers, other than how to turn them on and click at various things.
  As I'm impatient, intolerant etc etc., I'm looking for a good web-based resource that these pre-RTFM users can read in order to learn how to use their computers.
  The basic environment is w98, IE5 + Outlook Express.
  They'll be learning about Office too, once they've got some basic knowledge.
  Anyone know of any good websites / computer books aimed at absolute beginners ?

If it's a small office, buy them books in the Dummies series (Office 97 for Dummies, etc.).

Tim, the help and windows cd walk through is an excellant resource for moving around and becoming more familiar with both Windows and IE.  I'd recommend them for any novice as they are direct and offer specific information for the basic user.
