This is a great book for installing and maintaining FreeBSD. It explains why you may want to install certain commands or OS features and how to set them up. This book explains each aspect of the FreeBSD OS. This book is a great addition to the novice or experienced Unix user wanting to use FreeBSD.

This is the perfect computer book. It covers both beginner and intermediate topics with enough detail to really teach you what's going on, but not so much you get lost in theory. It is a easy book to read from beginning to end, or use as a reference and get just the info you need. If you are going to be using FreeBSD this is the book to have handy.

Thank you Mr Lehey!

This book covers FreeBSD 5 but we're almost up to 10 now and I don't see a revised version of this book yet.

Really wish I did b/c I'd buy it.

If you haven't tried FreeBSD, do it.
It's a good way to really learn how a Computer or Server should work and doesn't hide the computing details like a Windows or Mac Computer does.

I recommend this book for anyone that wants to know more about FreeBSD. It's full of information on installing and running FreeBSD.

As far as I know it's the only FreeBSD book but it would deserve 4 stars even in a tough competition. It covers installation, networking and administration in all details. I also enjoy FreeBSD 3.3 on 4 CDs enclosed in the book.
I think the book lacks the description of coexistense with other operating systems (Samba coverage is shallow) and modern GUI desktop like KDE (I found it different in some details from Linux). It should also be more up-to-date.
