As a non-serious non-IT non-professional, I keep going back to this book
time and time again. Even after almost three years with FreeBSD I'm
still a rookie, and her book makes sense. FreeBSD Unleashed is also
helpful. Only in the last year or so has the handbook started to make
sense to me. Even scarier, some man pages are readable now. Greg Lehey's
book on the other hand is in another solar system! :-)
I replaced Win98 with FreeBSD 4.7 as a home desktop. I really should be
using Xandros or SuSE, but I find learning FreeBSD to be interesting,
Lord help me.
People on this list are very helpful to beginners. Especially if the
beginner has shown she's put some effort into the problem herself.
