Go with the latest _RELEASE version.   Currently that is 6.1_RELEASE
but 6.2_RELEASE is expected out very soon - maybe before you finish 
reading handbook and DNS and Apache documentation.

There is good information in the FreeBSD handbook plus for DNS, check
out the O'Reilly DNS and Bind Grasshopper book and the O'Reilly DNS and
Bind Cookbook Opossum book.   There are several Apache books that each
have a slightly different style, but you might want to start with one
of the FreeBSD books such as 'FreeBSD Unleashed' that have a piece
more specific to setting it up on FreeBSD.  Go for the latest editions
of these books.  They tend to re-release them every so often, updated
for later versions.
