I'm quite new to FreeBSD too (RHEL/Fedora background), and am most 
impressed with it so far.

The first thing to mention is that this is an extremely helpful list (I 
won't call it a newsgroup because it isn't one, though I read it via 
gmane), and as such is most useful. Ask away!

Secondly (and probably stating the obvious), the handbook


is the place I always look first.

Good luck!
