Hi all, I'm a newbie for debian.

I've searched throught the web, but I'm not sure what reference is suitable/good for me.

Could anyone suggest some links/books which are good?
You can start with "Debian reference"
apt-get install debian-reference-en
it is available also in other languages, so check the Debian repository before installing the English version

You will find a lot of suggestions and comments in this two threads:

If by "a newbie for Debian" you mean you have some familiarity with another Linux or Unix, than I'd highly recommend picking up a copy of "The Debian System, Concepts and Technologies," by Martin Krafft. It provides really good introduction to the specifics of Debian - configuration, package management, how releases are structured, mixing releases, the Debian Community, and such.

I found it extremely helpful when I migrated from RedHat to Debian a couple of months ago (with a previous Solaris and BSD background).
