        This might better be asked offlist, but there may be others like
        me who are clueless, and since you are familiar, I'll ask you.
        How "interact-able" are FBSD and (say) MacBook?  E.g., is there a 
        "BSD-way" of my creating an account of the Apple and using is?
        It's got @G of RAM, and a 160G drive [!].  Apple says in plain
        text that is is UNIX.  (or maybe Berkeley Unix).  

        So besides the mac firewall [whatever], the laptop will be
        behind my pfSense box.  So... --and to be completely honest, the
        main reason for this >> $1000 laptop is *security*.  When she was
        younger I wasn't that concerned is some kiddie cracker learned
        that her favorite pet was a kitty.  Different now.

        Another question: can I install X11 without it bothering whatever
        kind of mac front-end windowing comes with?  Be great if I could
        admin this BSD-based computer from my office.

        thankee much!
