Is there a how-to super-page for FreeBSD?

There are several websites people have put together for Ubuntu that show
every little step for configuring Ubuntu, is there such a page for FreeBSD?
For example, tonight I installed Firefox, and wanted to install Acrobat,
Flash, Realplayer, and Java. I was able to find Acrobat and Flash by using
Google (the solution was at bsdforums.org). Realplayer and Java I still
need to find.
Here is an example of a really useful Ubuntu page: http://ubuntuguide.org
The "Add-On Applications" is especially useful for people who have just done
an install, and want their machine to be a "desktop" machine.
It just seems like the only way to find out things for FreeBSD is to ask on
the lists, or Google a list archive. It would be really great if there was
a "super-page" that had all the common add-ons. I use Fluxbox instead of
GNOME or KDE, so I prefer generic solutions.
I've been keeping notes as I play with FreeBSD, and will eventually put up
such a page if no one beats me to it. I'm still a FreeBSD nooby though, so
it might take me a while. There are some people here that bascially know
how to do everything with FreeBSD, I guess I'm hoping they will put
something together (or maybe help me).
