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
* 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
