There are many ways to obtain FreeBSD.	Look at appendix A in the handbook
for details about your preferred method.


FreeBSD is in the process of threading its kernel.  Freebsd stable (aka
4.8) would be the place to look if you want the book and the source to be
as close as possible, but keep in mind the vm system has had lots of
changes.  Freebsd current (aka 5.0) is the development branch and that is
where you will find all of the threading work (kse).

I can't speak for the others.  Have fun!
