Good points ... we'll probably end up with two versions of the installation
documentation at some point:
1. INSTALL.debian (basic install procedures for Debian)
2. Koha Noobie guide (Installing from scratch if you haven't used Linux before)
I've gotten several comments from experienced debian users who found that
the INSTALL.debian file was too verbose, and needed a summary for those
who already know the basics.
However, one of our goals is low barrier to entry, so your feedback is useful,
