Here are some suggestions:

1) Write code for "XYZ" project[1], eg do programming in C, C++, etc

2) Donate money to "XYZ" project so that someone who is efficient at writing code can
or better yet convince you company to donate money :-)

3) Buy products that indirectly support "XYZ" project. For example, RH7.2 box set instead
of just downloading the .iso

4) Contribute you time:
	--help by testing, eg. try building beta versions & report bugs
	--be the mailing list admin
	--help build "XYZ" projects web page

5) Contribute to your local user group :-)
