Yes, that's the best introduction to the concepts, however configuration 
information is consolidated in ipfw(8) (ie, man ipfw) where dummynet has 
its own chapter and some practical examples.

Probably best to subscribe to the freebsd-ipfw at freebsd.org list, and 
hunt through its archives, for a deeper exploration or more questions.

As for how it works internally, you really have to dive into sources.

cheers, Ian
