I'm not a linux newbie but I am a debion newbie.  I would of gotten into
it a year ago had woody install docs beed easily found from the web site. 
I followed the docs, installed potato and I thought Debian sucked because
of the 2.2 kernel and other things.  Not until a couple of months ago a
new debion fan programmer started working here and hand held me through
the first couple steps.  Now I'm a fan running woody!
