You're close bruce, but it should be:

% don't forget the setfont!
/Helvetica-Bold findfont 18 scalefont setfont
% must set the current point first
300 300 moveto
(Hello, Debian User) show

(Also, the save/restore are unnecessary. In fact this will most 
likely work without the showpage too since gs should by default at
the end of input print the page if it hasn't been yet.)
