this should be comprehensive enough http://www.togaware.com/linux/survivor/
Or you can search docs at debian's main website.'

First thing you've got to do is learn to use Google.

A search on "newbie debian" would have taken you here: http://newbiedoc.berlios.de/wiki/Main_Page

I'd recommend reading "Running (GNU)/Linux" book.

Is this a joke?? How about making YOUR point a bit clearer.....As for OP, his question was pretty obvious

for OP: One good (free) way to get you feet wet is to open a terminal and type "info coreutils". This gives a good intro to the basic commands.

Did someone mention Google???... Try this: type in "add users in debian". Whole bunch of info.

Off topic, but I wonder what the downside is of always Googling my way out of a problem---are they somehow getting revenue from me in a way that I not even aware?

I assume google does make money through you using google: the more people use google the more valuable the advertising becomes.
To be honest i have no problem with them making money as they do provide a good service. Why was that you asked?
