You're most welcome. Ok: That debian-administration.org page I noted,

one I originally came across several days ago. That original page struck
me as more complete, though I do confess that the debian-administration\
.org page is a bit more concise. I'm saving both of them in my notebase.
You might want to do the same in your kb. The link and its contents are:
