Aloha Derek,

Thats a "funny" request for FreeBSD. I have used it for years and 
outside of hardware issues (which were non FreeBSD issues) it just works.

I was unfortunately involved with the install of a M$ system recently 
doing "network cable" trouble shooting for the company. The problems 
they had were all Microsoft running Msql data base and it took 4 weeks 
and 2 outside support companies to resolve these issues.

If they have previously used M$ and a data base I could see why they 
would expect that outside support would be necessary.

You may find some independent sysadmins on this list who could help you 
with any issues you may have.

Having seen your answers on this list I would think you could handle 
most situations you may encounter.

I wish you success.
