What are some good tutorials for creating .deb files?

Here are some I've found and used, but none are really easy to follow...

Ubuntu dapper has a guide for it in System->Help->System Documentation , called Packaging guide, or something.

checkinstall would be the easiest and quickest but dirty way to create a deb package

Checkinstall doesn't help if I just want to create a deb package for a shell scripts or a bunch of shell scripts. I have no make file, just a bunch of files I want to put in certain directories, and a bunch of dependencies I want to make sure are installed before the scripts gets installed.

wouldn't it be better to just archive it?

In the book "Ubuntu Hacks : Tips & Tools for Exploring, Using, and Tuning Linux (Hacks)" published by O'Reilly, there is an entire chapter on Ubuntu package development and management, take a look at it :).
