Uh -- there's user documentation, in the documentation subdir and at
http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/ .

Uh, I don't understand what you're saying.  In the current system, the
install system "bootstraps" a box into being a debian box by
installing base (base2_2.tgz, generally, or via floppy, which is just
a split version of that).

After that, the user is rebooted and can install stuff, using (in
potato) either the task selection system (not yet done), and then
dselect or else apt-get directly.
