First of all, I would suggest http://www.reallylinux.com/
"International Site for Linux Beginners"

Warning now, self-promotion ahead!

Considering the audience you described, I'll also dare to suggest
that, before going to the talk, you read my "Seven Things we're tired
of hearing from software hackers" at http://digifreedom.net/node/56 :
while it's not about Linux specifically, it may help you to not spend
too much time presenting to your audience arguments that are really
NO relevant for them.

Hope this helps,
