Hi. I am new to Debian and after some struggle I have purchased Martin's
book mentioned above (http://debiansystem.info), which so far has helped
me a lot. I am only in the middle of it, however, I feel a lot more
confident reading this book next to my experimenting with Debian, as
before when I gathered bits and pieces of information spread over the
internet. I am not trying to advertise this book in particular, but I
think any kind of well structured introduction to Debian is a great help
to any Debian newbie, especially those coming from something like Windows.
