NO CLUE on installing Drupa on Debian, and NO LUCK

Hi, I'm know very little about Linux but decided to set up a machine running Drupal CMS on a Debian machine and it won't go. The folks at Drupal have tried to help but it seems the Debian OS won't do it's PHP thing for Drupal.

Not knowing anything about Linux means I have no idea where to start troubleshooting.

That means i'll have to start at the START I guess.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to become a master of Linux if one is starting from ABC (I can add and subtract, that's what it feels like)
