It might be wiser to direct the reader to download & install the latest
distribution from the NASM site.  The last time I check, the copy in the
Debian/Ubuntu repo { what you get when you do a "sudo apt-get install
nasm" } is an old, broken version that newbies should not have to contend

I've split off Nasm instructions to a separate page and allowed for
both options.

Can you remember what was broken about the Nasm version you saw and
roughly how long ago that was?
