Dear Sir: I assembled my first computer in March of 2005. I am 56 years old. Since that time, I have built one tower and built a computer for myself. I have tried several times to install and run FreeBSD and ran into trouble configuring my internet connection via DHCP. I have started studying an older manual for BSD by Greg Lehey for 4.4BSD. I have a lot to learn and I would love to install FreeBSD, but I am begining to wonder if I"m in over my head. Would it be necessary for me to take college courses in order to function in a BSD enviroment? I have survived some major problems with other operating systems. I have run and used:Fedora Core, Xandros, Ubuntu, installed Debian, DesktopBSD, and PCBSD; but, my dream is to run FreeBSD, but I have to be connected to the Internet to conduct personal business. What must I know to configure sbcglobal.net to operate FreeBSD. And, do you think I need to learn a lot more, or should I scrub the whole idea because it was meant for a educated programmer? If you find the time to answer me I'll be very grateful. I'll understand if you just refer me to the proper man or info pages. Thank you for your time. Yours, Conrad
