Always start at www.debian.org (Most lunguage are supported.)

For packaging, deb is actually ar containing tar or something.  For
details start from maintenars guide http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/

Advantage over rpm is post/pre-script which update running daemon on the
fly. And apt-get which automatically update security fixes.

For some quick summary of debian specific commands, look into my site
below.  :-)
