    If you don't know Unix at all, then the Sams-Net Debian book looks good. I
didn't get it since there's too much basic knowledge there that I already have
and not enough Debian-specific material. 

    Hmm. Here's a nice list.

    It's in the util-linux package. There's some rather vital stuff in there,
are you sure it's just not in your path?

    dpkg -l "*util*" | grep ^i

    Should be in the /bin directory. It gives you all the messages sent to the
console during boot.
