I’ve tried thinking like a programmer, but I only achieved real success after remaining awake for two days straight. ) Over the last several years, the skill level required for system administration has dropped; no longer must you be a programmer. Similarly, man pages have become more and more readable. Man pages are not tutorials, however; they explain the behavior of one particular program, not how to achieve a desired effect. While they’re neither friendly nor comforting, they should be your first line of defense.
In fact, I have deliberately chosen not to include some topics in this book because they have adequate coverage in the Handbook. The FAQ is designed to provide quick answers to the questions most frequently asked on the FreeBSD mailing lists. Some of the answers aren’t suitable for inclusion in the Handbook, while others just point to the proper Handbook chapter or article. Several other books cover a variety of topics, from kernel debugging to Project organization. Of the 50 or so articles available, some are kept only for historical reasons (such as the road map to releasing FreeBSD version 5), while others discuss the subtleties of specific parts of the system such as serial ports or CVSup.
Plus, they’re either encyclopedic in scope or so painfully detailed that they’re difficult to actually read. Do you really need to reference a screenshot when you’re told click OK or accept the license agreement? And when was the last time you actually sat down to read the encyclopedia? Absolute FreeBSD is a little different. It’s designed to be read once, from front to back. You can skip around if you want to, but each chapter builds on what comes before it. While this isn’t a small book, it’s smaller than many popular computer books.
