Organization of This Book
This book is split into five logically distinct sections. The first section, <emphasis>Getting Started</emphasis>, covers the installation and basic usage of FreeBSD. It is expected that the reader will follow these chapters in sequence, possibly skipping chapters covering familiar topics. The second section, <emphasis>Common Tasks</emphasis>, covers some frequently used features of FreeBSD. This section, and all subsequent sections, can be read out of order. Each chapter begins with a succinct synopsis that describes what the chapter covers and what the reader is expected to already know. This is meant to allow the casual reader to skip around to find chapters of interest. The third section, <emphasis>System Administration</emphasis>, covers administration topics. The fourth section, <emphasis>Network Communication</emphasis>, covers networking and server topics. The fifth section contains appendices of reference information.
