Guide you through the installation process.
Teach you some Unix basics.
Show you how to install the wealth of third party applications available for FreeBSD.
Introduce you to X, the Unix windowing system, and detail how to configure a desktop environment that makes you more productive.
We have tried to keep the number of forward references in the text to a minimum so that you can read this section of the Handbook from front to back with the minimum of page flipping required.
