I would think it would be better to keep each type of Linux install
separate. Debian-based vs. RPM. Also, I know that some versions of
Linux use different commands to do the same things, so those versions
need to be separated as well.
The problem is the fact that there are so many versions of Linux and the
desktop environments out there. Will all of the install information be
via a "terminal" or "command line" option? Even this terminology for
the same box/window could be confusing.
Personally, I would make is as simple as possible for the Debian-based
installs, like Ubuntu, and the same with the popular RPM-based
installs. Each type separate. Then if there are some Linux installs
that are different than the basic DEB or RPM installs, then note that
and add the needed information at the end of the page[s].
note: I may not be thinking straight after a month of illness and
hospital[s] visits, but what I remember as a beginner user of Linux,
there was some needed information that was left out. Things like how to
remove the previous version[s] installed by the OS installation or
manual installation that could interfere with the new installation. I
cannot find the document I created for this, but how do you use "remove"
to do this, or should I use "purge".
