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.

After reading the Debian install and security howtos, I've decided that I should move /var, /usr and /tmp to their own partitions. Thing is, I don't know how my fstab should look like and how big the partitions should be.
I would like to ask for input for the layout I plan (below).
Am I on the right track? Are these partition sizes okay or are they excessive? This computer is the one I'll be using for home. In the future I do plan on setting it up to host web pages as well.
this depends on what you really need, and the free space you have.
Debian is a huge distribution, and if you're going to install most of the packages, you may need more space in "/usr"; I'd make a bit bigger "/tmp" and "/", and a bit smaller "/var" (unless you have special necessities).
just one think I forgot: if you want "/usr" to have the "ro" flag, of course, you have to do it after the install process; ie, after the installation process you change the "fstab" file according to your needs...
