Just a small suggestion here Kevin or whoever is maintaining...

Install notes for debian may not work , i just created a few new 64 bit debian machines in virtual box and I had to install sudo (it does not come installed !!)
so a reall newb may have trouble..

maybe before your checkout section add some directions like this

Switch to root user by typing this command in terminal

then enter your root password as prompted,

should change your system prompt

to install sudo type in terminal:

apt-get install sudo

Then add user assume your user name is xx

adduser xx sudo
