Strange question: Is the FreeBSD handbook available as iBook?

At the moment I've got plenty of time, unfortunately not in front of my
desktop computer. Some time ago I won an iPad2, it's a dust catcher,
nice hardware, but odd software. I wonder if its possible to use it as a
reader. The problem is, that I can't connect the iPad to the Internet
and using iTunes (a disgusting application) in a virtual machine until
now I'm only able to use iBooks, but I don't know how to transmit plain
txt, pdf, html or what ever from the PC to the iPad.

If somebody should know how I can get the FreeBSD handbook on my iPad
that would be a help, so I could spend more time in reading how to
handle FreeBSD.

On VirtualBox (it doesn't work with wine) I run Win XP + iTunes and I
connect the PC and iPad by USB. No jailbreake, but if it would help I
would jailbraeke it. I tried to set up Linux to do ad-hoc by an USB WiFi
stick, but it never worked.

It would be nice to run Linux or FreeBSD on the iPad ;).
