A friend was getting started with Mercurial, and asked me for a few equivalents to commands he used in Subversion. I tried pointing him to a tutorial online that would provide the Subversion/Mercurial rosetta stone, and was surprised to find that there wasn’t one I could recommend. So I wrote it: Bare-bones basic Mercurial for Subversion users.
It might be worthwhile to create another version of the tutorial that walks through the steps starting with creating a new repository, discussing whether you'd do 'truck', etc, as you would with subversion, preferred methods for exposing the repository (ssh, http, ...), security considerations, and so forth. I've been meaning to do it myself, but since you're on a roll ;-)
