[OCLUG-Tech] introduction to Debian packages

Hi folks,

What should I be reading before attempting to install software on 
Debian?  Specifically, I want to know more about the tools for 
adding, removing, and upgrading software.

For starters, I'm going to be installing: Postfix, dhcpd, and Apache

The above mention software I'm quite familiar with.  What I don't 
know is how to find out:

- how to install a package
- how to remove a package
- what packages are already installed
