You experts probably wonder why I am using FreeBSD 5.0 instead of FreeBSD 5.1... That's because I am a newbie and I got a book that teaches me how to use FreeBSD 5.0. I prefer sticking to it and learn most of the stuff before I go on to a newer version.So if anyone knows what's going on, please reply! Thanks!!! :D

Have a nice day!!!


Well, nothing's changed, except for some code streamlining
and possibly bug removal.  I'd skip to the chapter on
"cvsup" and forge ahead ... :-)
