New: Dutch Debian 2.0 Manual

In the past summer holidays, I've been writing a reasonably complete
_Dutch_ Debian 2.0 manual. It should be understandable by anyone with a
little experience in DOS/Windows ("a Linux newbie" :).

Subjects covered are:

   * Basic knowledge
        o Operating systems
        o Linux
        o Devices
        o Networks
   * Installation of Debian GNU/Linux 2.0
        o Very extensive step-by-step manual
        o Including low-memory systems (4 - 6 MB memory)
   * Usage of Linux and Debian
        o Basic commands
        o Basic system administration
        o Package management with dselect
        o Installation and usage of the X Window System
        o Various other interesting/complex matters, like floppy-usage,
          shell scripts, PPP and setting up a simple nameserver.

The Manual may be used/distributed under the GNU GPL. The Manual is
available online in various formats (in Dutch!) at


This might be worth a link on the DDP pages - or other Debian pages.

If the Dutch Manual is translated into English, it might be a valuable
addition to the Debian documentation. If you are willing to translate, or
if you have questions, comments or suggestions, you can reach the author
(that's me) as
