First of all, you need to wrap your emails to 72-80 character rows so people can read them. Second of all, I've found the best place to learn about FreeBSD is on this mailing list, and on the FreeNode IRC channels dedicated to FreeBSD (#freebsd, #freebsd-gnome, #kde-freebsd, #freebsdhelp). For searchable archives, try http://www.freebsdsearch.com, http://www.freebsdforums.com/forums, and of course the FreeBSD handbook on http://freebsd.org The handbook and FAQ is really the place to start. If you don't know what part of the handbook to look, just ask here or on IRC and some kind soul will help you out. FreeBSD really is the best OS in the world, and also the best community. You will love it. -- Adam <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
