Hi Paul,

When I was becoming more intereted in Debian, I printed the install
manaul and the debian refernce. I did it at Kinko's by giing them a PDF
which they easily printed and spiral bound. (B/W -- as color is a bit
beyond my means)

cd's for try-before-you-buy(test you system).

Also, a list of *nix/debian useful commands?

counter.li.org #238656 -- goto counter.li.org and be counted!
