1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 29 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete FreeBSD: Documentation from the Source (Paperback)
This book is bad! Definitely not for the novice (as it claims to be) and not sure if it's any good for the med/ad user.
I am from a MS environment and have dabbled a bit with Redhat before but decided to go with FreeBSD hence purchased this book to get started.
I've brought many Tech books from Amazon but this is the first one that I am so disappointed with that I am returning it. The book provides lots of 'you can do this and that' but never actually get down to showing the novice how. It usually starts off with a couple of commands but then stopped not letting you know how to finish the task.
Chpt. 9 on Ports collection is most disappointing. It provides nothing useful and no mention whatsoever on what to do if you have a gzip file. I ended up referring back to my Redhat book which provided more thorough instructions and explanations.
