I'm a moderately experienced user, on my way to Free BSD glory. I've been
reading the handbook pretty carefully and I've discovered some
quirks/potential improvements:

7.4. The Configuration File:
Q: "All PCs supported by FreeBSD have one of these. If you have an IBM PS/2
(Micro Channel Architecture), you cannot run FreeBSD at this time (support
is being worked on)."

A: I understand that isa is probably a standard used throughout my whole
system but I got a bit confused since my system only contains PCI and AGP
cards. Perhaps a note should say that you need to include isa support even
if you system doesn't have any ISA cards.
