good idea. Without aiming for a holy grail I would say the following
sections should be included (not a complete list):
* Basic info for newbies like installing, installing programs with

* Definitely a section that explains the legal issues for distributing
linux and why it's harder to install java etc.
* An intermediate section that covers the internals of apt/dpkg and
