Whoops, I overlooked them the first time, and then never got around to
doing anything with them until now.  I've attached a version with my

Ah.  Thanks. :-)

<title>Practical Guide to Debian GNU/Linux</title>

This is a practical guide to the Debian GNU/Linux Operating System.
It intends to be a reference manual for useful features that are
quite unknown to most of the Debian users.

<chapt id="docs">Debian Documentation
<sect id="dhelp">The Documentation System (doc-base)
Debian has a centralized system with which many packages register
their documentation.  A vital accompaniment to this system is software
that presents the documentation in an organized fashion.
One such program is <prgn/dhelp/, available in the <package/dhelp/ package.
(See <ref id="instalar"> for information on installing packages.)
Although some packages register directly with <prgn/dhelp/, many register
only with <package/doc-base/ (the centralized system), so you will want to
install <package/doc-base/ as well for best results.
To start dhelp, you can type
$ dhelp
at a shell prompt or select "Debian Online Help" from the window
manager's Debian "Help" menu.  <prgn/dhelp/ normally picks a Web browser
automatically, but you can force it to use a particular browser by
setting the environment variable BROWSER.  For instance, if you put
export BROWSER=galeon
in <file>~/.bash_profile</file>, then <prgn/dhelp/ will default to starting
Galeon rather than whatever it might otherwise pick.  (Note that
changes to that file will not take effect until the next time you log in.)


<sect id="dwww">Debian Documentation via the World Wide Web
<prgn>dwww</prgn> creates a WWW environment for <strong>all</strong>
available documentation on your system.  It even lets you read
manual pages from your Web browser, which can be very convenient.
To use it, install the package <package/dwww/; for best results, you
will also want to install <package/doc-base/, because not everything
registers directly with dwww.
There are two ways of using <prgn>dwww</prgn>: as an index,
which you can browse to find what you want, or as a fast query
to all the documentation provided by a package. To see the
index, just run
$ dwww
<!-- menu entry? -->
To see all the available documentation for a package, type
$ dwww <var/package/
There are some other packages you can use to view documentation
registered with <package/doc-base/; for instance, the
<package/doc-central/ package also uses a local HTTP server.
