May I suggest you download and install some online documentation for
your friend after you have set up Debian for him. That way he will not
have to search for it. Much online documentation is in html format so
only a browser is necessary to read it locally. gv would suitable if he
prefers to view or print the pdf versions often provided.
Some Debian specific links:
There is Debian package of the last one.
Though not specifically directed towards Debian The Linux Newbie
Administrator Guide and The Linux Cookbook both have a lot of basic
material explained in them and are good reads.
The second book is packaged for Debian.
