Here is the HPT Ring Games page.

There is not a lot of information there. What should I add?

Maybe something about ratholing?
Leave the table and come back post your blind, if you missed it?
Buy back in for the same amount as you left with, unless its lower then the max buyin?

There are multiple threads in the Cash Game section with more info. i.e. http://forums.homepokertourney.com/index.php/topic,13123.0.html

I think the most useful info is what differentiates cash game from tourneys:

* Unlimited buying up/rebuys
* Can't go south or leave table and come back with less within certain time period
* Straddles
* Exposing cards not necessarily against the rules (depends on rule set)
* Running it twice/insurance/prop bets
* Don't have to show hands at showdown when all in
* How posting blinds when away from the table is handled

etc.

Great suggestions thus far.

What to do when a player leaves the table but not the game... (does he get cards that are auto-mucked or is he dealt out, how long do his chips stay on the table if someone is waiting?)

Also, your chip distribution is a bit off...  I can't imagine a 50c chip and a $500 chip on the table at the same time...  Nor can I imagine needing 1000 chips, unless you are running multiple tables of ring games...  Frankly, you never really need more than three chips on the table, maybe a handful of a fourth denom...

Lastly, since the novice is probably most acquainted with tournament poker because that's what they see on TV, maybe a quick overview of the differences (some of which have already been mentioned above).

...or you run different stakes on different occasions.
