I'm a computer illiterate, so I'm now looking for good tutorials that will help me to set up and use my Debian 9 systems.
Here's a nice page that I found that works good for anyone who's just starting with Debian 9 and/or either a newbie or unfamiliar with using the Command Line:

Things to do after installing Debian 9 “Stretch”Clik :wink:

and they have a nice follow up which currently I'm working on:

Apt Pinning Debian Multimedia Using Preferences Clik :wink:

I know most of you gurus are familiar with these things, but since I'm back trying to learn as much as I can about Linux (no longer just to surf and play around) to get away from WinBlows, I'm looking around for all the tutorials that will help me to set up my Linux's so's I'm not going to screw everything up while messing around.

I like these two tutorials, very user friendly! I've used the first one in setting up 'stable' and also 'testing,' on the E6400 and the D600, but haven't completed the second tutorial yet on the E6400 before I try the 'testing' install - (I try to take my time so I learn from it, not just copy someone else's work!). I don't even know if it's a good idea to pin anything on 'testing', I've got some research to do before that.

Now, If they just have something similar to these for that hybrid called antiX ..... I tried to set up antiX that way, but I found a roadblock whilst looking for my sources.list, (blank file). I'm not ready to complete the antiX yet, until I get both of the Debians set up, so I may be asking a couple of questions on antiX forum if I can't find an answer on the net, whenever I get to that point ;>).

Thanks mmmna,
I think i must have slept thru my post ;>). Now it's fixt!
