Given that even people who have used Debian in the past won't have any
clue as to what to do at ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ (let alone those
who are giving it a go for the first time), perhaps adding a link to the
installation manual would be appropriate. Preferrably before the ftp://,
I think.

I assume it'll still be at
http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/installmanual , but I suppose that
might change.
