<P>As there are so many configurations possible for the setup and
maintenance of a Linux systems, knowledgeable people have provided
comprehensive instructions on how to do many specific tasks. For good reason
they are called HOWTOs. If you need your Debian system to do something that
isn't covered by the normal Debian setup, this is a good resource to check.
<P>The HOWTO's are actually part of the Linux Documentation Project. They <dl>
are also available for installation on your machine in the doc-linux-text <dt><A HREF="http://www.linux.com/">Linux.com</A>, <A HREF="http://www.linux.org/">Linux.org</A>

<H2><A href="http://www.linuxdoc.org/">Linux Documentation Project</A></H2>
<P><EM>(Please note: The following description of the LDP has been copied
from the <A HREF="http://www.li.org/resources/doclists/index.shtml">Linux
International web site</A>)</EM>
<P>Linux documentation is coordinated through the efforts of the
<STRONG><A href="http://www.linuxdoc.org/">Linux Documentation Project</A></STRONG>.
The overall goal of the LDP is to collaborate in taking care of all of
the issues of Linux documentation, ranging from online docs (man
pages, texinfo docs, and so on) to printed manuals covering topics
such as installing, using, and running Linux. The LDP is essentially a
loose team of volunteers with no real central organization; anyone who
is interested in helping is welcome to join in the effort. We feel
that working together and agreeing on the direction and scope of Linux
documentation is the best way to go, to reduce problems with
conflicting efforts&mdash;e.g. two people writing two books on the same
aspect of Linux wastes someone's time along the way.
<P>The LDP is set out to produce the canonical set of Linux online and
printed documentation. Because our docs will be freely available (as per
the GNU GPL) and distributed on the net, we are able to easily update the
documentation to stay on top of the many changes in the Linux world.
<P>The LDP has so far produced a number of Linux documents and manuals: <dt><A HREF="http://kernelnotes.org/">KernelNotes.org</A>
