Define 'login to the net'.  PPP to an ISP?  Run a web browser from X
windows?  Run a web server?  UUCP mail for an entire domain?  SMTP mail
for an entire domain?  POP3 mail?  FTP?  IRC?

I don't try to do the POP3 or X windows (and my OS/2 server does my PPP
link), but freebsd seems pretty good for the rest.  I find the docs
pretty decent, have you picked up a book on FreeBSD yet?
