Karstens' suggestions should help you get set up with your debian
install.  Also, searching on google and looking at archives of this
list at lists.debian.org should fill in the missing pieces.

Since you say 'I dont know anything about linux/unix' I would also
recommend a very well-balanced Linux intro book by Michael Kofler,
entitled _Linux_.  It's on its second edition and is published by
Addison-Wesley.  bookpool.com should carry it, along with many other

Hope this helps and take care,
