A good BSD Text Book?

The book that really made everything clear to me (and I compiled my 
first kernel from it's instructions) was "The Complete FreeBSD" by Greg 
Lehey. I had the 3rd edition from the FreeBSD PowerPak 
(www.freebsdmall.com) 4.something. I think it has been updated and 
includes some 5.x stuff now.

Good luck,
