Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Although Iceweasel is just the same without the Firefox name or logo.
Due to Mozilla logos licensing, Mozilla software isn't DFSG-free, so Debian distributes Mozilla software with different logos. One day Mozilla Corporation decided to revoke the agreement to let Debian use Mozilla trademarks, so Debian changed to non-trademarked product names. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla...nded_in_Debian for more information.
wouldn't enabling testing as a repo and then running aptitude install iceweasel work a lot easier when it comes to possible dependencies?
With the freeze in Lenny even sid isn't getting many packages moving into it. The OP wants firefox and not iceweasel because firefox has had 2 security updates recently and at this point iceweasel is lagging behind.
