This sounds good!

Looking a bit closer, I actually think that the whole "6. The second boot" 
chapter should be removed, as the mounting of CD-ROMs and floppies is 
covered in 13. Using removable media", system shutdown and rebooting 
should be in 5.10 "Rebooting the system".

Maybe looking into the preparational steps for this would be a nice first 
goal, before working on the user management chapter.

Please also make sure that the copyright on that material allows this (and 
give proper attribution, as we do for the PAM section).
