Changes from the First Edition (2001)

A complete Index has been added.
All ASCII figures have been replaced by graphical diagrams.
A standard synopsis has been added to each chapter to give a quick summary of what information the chapter contains, and what the reader is expected to know.
The content has been logically reorganized into three parts: "Getting Started", "System Administration", and "Appendices".
crossref:basics[basics,FreeBSD Basics] has been expanded to contain additional information about processes, daemons, and signals.
