Basic Guides to GNU/Linux

This site contains basic and helpful guides to, and information about, the GNU/Linux computer Operating System, with a bias toward the Debian distribution.

The guides are intended for those new to GNU/Linux and are more a collection of helpful practical notes than an attempt to offer a comprehensive user guide. This site is intentionally simple so as to be readily accessable to browsers such as lynx.
