I wish more books like it would be written and dual-published both for
free access on the net (and installation into laptops), as well as in
paperback to sell at book stores.

It irks me that most articles about Linux will list the commercial
distributions, and blatantly fail to mention Debian.  It's as if there's
a taboo against mentioning it.  We need more mentions in significantly
technical articles.  That will help the distribution gain public favor
and respect as a professional quality enterprise grade Linux.

The new installer really rocks!  It's awesome.  I think it works better
than either Anaconda or the Windows XP installer.

Hint:  http://www.sysresccd.org/  has a partition editor on it called
QtParted.  I don't know if their version is hacked for it or if QtParted
supports it out-of-the-box, but this rescue cd can resize a Windows XP
NTFS partition with no trouble at all.  Don't waste any money on
