The 2nd edition of Greg Lehey's book introduced me to FreeBSD. I have purchased the most recent edition; and I also have Michael Lucas' book, which I find very helpful. Both books are excellent; but the authors have different writing styles. My suggestion is to read a chapter from each book that covers the same topic, and see which style you're more receptive to. Use the second book as an additional reference **while** you read the first book. > > Thank you for all the advise. > > Laszlo > > One more questione the complete freebsd covers > Bsd 5.
