Yes, a "Debian User's Guide" would make the debian distribution
much more useful and attractive!

Please do so. This HTML-page can also serve as a framework for
the work on the manual. Let's decide upon a TOC split into
chapters and sections, and then find authors for each section.
As soon as a section is ready for the public, we can add a
link to it.

Whenever the stuff is written, it should be an easy task to rewrite it
in SGML and make it an "official" document.
