Excellent idea... In fact, this is probably my "pet peeve" with Linux
books in general. I have been using Linux for about a year and have
fallen victim several times to inaccurate information... (I dare say
that nothing is more distressing for a newbie!! ;-) This would be an
excellent idea!

{an aside to Dale...} I must say that I for one am very happy to see a
book on Debian... I am in the process of switching from Red Hat (mostly
because of dpkg/dselect's excellent handling of dependencies and
Debian's commitment to be non-commercial) and your book has been quite
helpful. Thank you.
