I use Debian/GNU Linux version 3.0;
Linux server 2.4.20-k6 #1 Mon Jan 13 23:49:14 EST 2003 i586 unknown
DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #68 from Will Trillich <firstname.lastname@example.org>
So you've installed Debian/GNU Linux -- NOW WHAT? For some
pointers, FAQ and unix/linux lists, visit Unix Guru's Universe
There's a lot of handy links there to keep you off the streets
for quite some time. (I found this page from a link on
