FWIW: O'Reilly published a Special Edition book LEARNING DEBIAN

booth at Las Vegas COMDEX 1999. *This was the first year Linux had a

major presence at COMDEX. *Having the Linux people all in one exhibit

hall greatly simplified my investigations of making the switch from the

Amiga. I still have the book. *However, ultimately, I chose Mandrake 7

as my first distro. *Debian was not a distro for the noobie, either then

or now.




I wouldn't agree. I started with Debian being a complete noob and I

manage somehow.*I didn't actually start with Debian, but with a debian-based distro from Canada, called Libranet. Taught me everything I know about partitioning (cfdisc) and other installation tasks through an NCurses interface. Being forced to think doesn't hurt. When that folded, I moved straight to Debian. Still learning.
