Or you could just browse the repositories with the graphical interface for it.
Anyway, I think you should give a summary of how the repositories themselves work in your guide.
Not all Linux distros use the same repositories (some don't even have repositories), so one would have to give distro specific info. on those things. Guides can be found all over the place (usually on the official site of each distro).
As for Ubuntu, https://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/deskt...e/C/index.html
(that's for Dapper, but Edgy is similar). Still, I don't think FF is available in the normal repos, so you either have to download it and install it yourself, or install Automatix http://www.getautomatix.com/index.ph...id=15&Itemid=1
which lets you automatically install the latest version (FF2.0).
