<P><A href="http://www.debian.org/">Debian</A> is a
<A href="intro/free">free</A> operating system (OS) for your computer.
-An operating system is the set of basic programs
-and utilities that make your computer run. At the core of an operating
-system is the kernel. The kernel is the most fundamental program on the
-computer, does all the basic housekeeping and lets you start other programs.

-<A href="http://www.linux.com/">Linux</A> kernel but work is
-in progress to provide Debian for other kernels, using
