"This article is a review of Debian GNU/Linux for users used to the BeOS, and serves as a gentle introduction into the pain-free installation and administration of the OS. The article leads the user through the installation of Debian GNU/Linux and ReiserFS, security updates, an upgrade to Woody, and the installation of X11, KDE, Koffice, and other applications. The reader will also learn some of the Zen of Debian, and gain an understanding of the routine maintenance that is required.

This article should be useful to a a computer user who has some experience messing around with alternative operating systems like the BeOS. The article does not cover all Debian architectures, nor everything that could possibly go wrong, nor all the things you might need to think about. Only the stuff that's fairly common or really important."
