 I suggest you try Oreilly's "Running Linux 3Rd edition." I have been
using their 2nd edition for years and just recently got the new one. It
is very complete in all of the essential data. It will also cover a lot
of UNIX basics that seem to be missing from most of the Debian specefic
books. I think that it empowers you to know the basics before trying to
manage Debian. Good Luck.
