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.

I got my old P1 200 up and running again and want to install debian on it to get familiar with it before moving to my AMD.
I'm used to Mandrake and SuSE so partitioning was always very easy. I'm a bit clueless about what way to go with debian. I got the sarge iso and got the network running. Now I get to the partitions and have no clue how big to make them. I got two 2.2 gig HDD in the machine and can use it al for Debian.
I guess swap has to be something like 250mb and I want a FAT32 of about 200 mb to move file from and to NTFS XP on the other machine. What about /home /usr and /boot how big should I make them in this old box? Perphaps I better not partition at all and make the second HDD /usr or /home?
I did read some posts about grafical partitioning program in Debian. Can I enter that from the setup cd?
