Is the first edition Lucas' "Absolute BSD", or was it also titled
"Absolute FreeBSD"?  From what I've seen on Amazon, it looks like
Absolute FreeBSD is a follow-up to Absolute BSD.

For the record . . . title changes for new editions like that annoy me.
It can make it pretty difficult at times trying to determine whether or
not I'm about to buy a duplicate.  The switch from Learning Perl Objects,
References, and Modules to Intermediate Perl was another example of that
sort of annoyance.
