If your a FreeBSD Newbie Looking to get FreeBSD and documentation, Goto:
look for "the complete set of FreeBSD +4 CD's"
when you get FreeBSD from indelible blue, you get a 500 page book + the
walnut Creek distribution of FreeBSD... It's way better than buying FreeBSD
from walnut Creek with no documentation.
