On FreeBSD, in difference to many "modern" Linusi, you have
excellent documentation. If you see some interface you don't
know yet, try

	% apropos lagg

or just right away

	% man lagg

and you'll see that lagg is the "link aggregation and link
failover interface".

You see that all the documentation is already installed on
your system, accessible at every time, no need for an
Internet connection.

FreeBSD's high quality manpages do contain entries for the
system binaries, kernel interfaces, library functions,
device drivers, configuration files and many maintenance
procedures. Some quality ports of everyday average desktop
software do follow this approach (see "man mplayer",
"man xmms", "man opera"), but many don't (see = don't
see "man firefox", "man thunderbird", or almost any KDE
program, where documentation is traditionally left to
the users, or left out, or redirected at the web, a
forum or a wiki, usually outdated). :-)
