Hi all, I've used FreeBSD for about two years now. Besides using Linux for projects on school computers, I never had much experience with Unix-like operating systems. While I get by nicely on FreeBSD, I recently felt that I didn't have a very solid understanding of it's organization or structure. I suppose one can't know everything about an operating system with as much functionality as FreeBSD, but I started to feel like my knowledge was really ad-hoc, and that I didn't completely understand what I was doing (as if I had learned only by example).
To that end, I started reading the FreeBSD handbook front-to-back. I've gotten to Part III, and while it's been very valuable, I still feel like I'm learning by example, and not by understanding the operating system. I'm starting to think I'm expecting something out of the handbook it's not designed to do. It seems like the man pages would be a good place to go, but my trouble with using them is that they're difficult to put together the information on different pages. I suppose I want something like a textbook. I dream of a K&R type text that is very comprehensive and well-organized. If anyone has advice, I'd very much appreciate it!
