ARRRGH ! It actually went wrong the way I imagined it would .. Broken links everywhere ... disoriented forum-goers hitting dead ends ... misinformation scattered amidst the dust ... Next time , use REDIRECTS ! (and if necessery new articles and restructuring and ... whatever it takes). Meanwhile , I added an info text at the top of the article.

The bit on Americanizing is a way of driving traffic to the writers site. Have left the simple version that was already there and deleted the spam.--Brian 20:59, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Brian: I was requested by forum members at the Raspberry Pi Forum to add it to the Wiki. It was in no way an attempt to drive traffic to my site. I thought it was useful information with screenshots - that's why I wrote it, the Raspberry_Pi Twitter page retweeted it and a forum member asked me to add it to the Wiki. See this link for further details: [1] Regardless, if you feel it is not a useful resource, there is no need to link to it. --Rohan Kapoor

How about a separate page, intro to the command line & SSH for beginners, which is linked to from here? I know the command line sint the best place to throw new users, however a lot of extra software is installed via the command line. Nickweb (talk)

Keyboard Mapping

This information is not quite correct. Maybe it is out of date? It didn't work for me when I tried to change the mapping from en_UK to en_US. I will try to update it. For example, the command "sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-data" returns an error that the console-data package is not installed on the system. The correct process can be found here: http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting#Re-mapping_the_keyboard_with_Debian_Squeeze Cmbuck 02:49, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Update instructions from Debian to Raspbian?

Now that Raspbian is the Reccomended Distribution, shouldn't we have instructions for Raspbian, as that is what Beginners, which this article is aimed at, will be likely using?
