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.

i don't know about anyone else, but as far as the kernel config file goes, i made a copy of GENERIC, edit it to suit my needs, and then when i cvsup the source i use my edited conf file to make the new kernel. i've been using freebsd for almost a year, and i've been using the same kernel file the whole time. i upgrade to the latest stable about once a month. it's not required that you re-edit the generic file everytime you want to upgrade
