The official effort to write something like this is called the Debian
User's Manual, and it would be great if you could help with that.

I'm writing a chapter on files, and I'd like to steal some bits from
your document if I could. You can see my rough development chapter
at:
  http://student-www.uchicago.edu/users/rhpennin/file-management.sgml 
Info on the User's Manual as a whole can be found by following the Debian
Documentation Project link from the Documentation section of
www.debian.org.

Anyway, if you're into writing documentation I'd encourage you to help
us out with the User's Manual. There are only a few people working on it 
so far.
