Over a year ago I tried to install Debian, but did have the
time to play with the installation. I'm thinking of giving it

books on the installation procedure.
I'm fairly new to Debian too (but not linux). You might try
<http://www.debianuniverse.com/> which gives a brief walkthrough. The
official Debian docs are at <http://www.debian.org/doc/>. Some book
recommendations are at <http://www.debian.org/doc/books>.
A couple of books that I really like and recommend are "Running Linux
4th Ed" by Matt Welsh and "Linux Administration Handbook" by Evi Nemeth,
Garth Snyder, Trent R. Hein. These books both mention Debian and are
very readable and both are a tremendous aid in setting up a new system.
You can find more recommendation from the list by looking on the news
server <news.gmane.org> and searching the group for subjects containing
'book'. For some reason, I've never seen "Linux Administration Handbook"
recommended though and it is becoming one of my favorites.
