After a busy few weeks I finally had the oppurtunity to sit down and start to
look around my new Debian Woody install. I still don't have Xwindows cause
my radeons not supported. I wanted to start getting to know this OS, when I
started with RedHat, I had a nice BIG book to read from.
Is there a BIG book of Debian, either downloadable or bought that is highly
recommended for Newbies. (Advanced Network Administration for Debian Servers
is out of the question, something more of the "Using Debian ... the How to
find your arse with both hands guide.", type flavour)
I find it embarressing to keep posting simplistic questions when most posts
seem to deal with
"redirecting /var/spoong/thingo/tango/charlie to less|more| and
thensome/headache/var/null/ to get your usb printer working because they left
:icky/icky/wangna/print/this out of the build in kernel version 1.1.Sanders.
I need a little |less information and lot more HOWTO. I've wasted money on
books that didn't accomplish what they claimed to set out. I was hoping some
of the Debian community could help me get on track quickly, without pestering
the slug post.
