    Also, it’s for the operators, not me; I can set it up, etc, I just need the operators trained in Debian setup+admin (I don’t want someone else setting it up, that’s as good as me doing so).

    Well, I teach Linux at North Sydney TAFE. I’m a Debian person myself, but I have a RedHat bias in the course, since that’s the distribution most beginners wean themselves on.

    My advice; have a talk to your local TAFE college, and see if they offer a Linux course. Maybe you can get the lecturer there to do a Debian course specifically for your company.

    Otherwise … ahhh what the hell, I could probably take a trip down to Melbourne in a few months and train the staff for you. It can’t be that hard to move my notes to Debian 🙂
