FreeBSD Most tech savvy geeks can work their way through a FreeBSD install, even if they have no prior UNIX experience. However installing an OS and configuring an OS are two totally different things. This article is targeted towards anyone who might be wondering about FreeBSD, but doesn't know what to do with it after they install it. This isn't then end-all be-all of FreeBSD howto's. Just some of the simple stuff. Update: Some of the readers of OSNews have emailed me concerning corrections that need to be made in this article. Dig in (third page) for more.

how can you say that keeping freebsd updated is hard & complicated? all you have to do to keep the system up to date is cvsup the source, compile it, and install it. with the apps it's even easier. just cvsup the ports tree, and run portupgrade on the app that you want updated
