I know this is a really stupid question but what else would you expect from
and NT guy. (please don't laugh when you read this.)

I am beginning the long process of ridding myself of Microsoft products and
at the core of my systems I plan to implement 100% FreeBSD. I have been
unable to find any books related to FreeBSD. I know it is suppose to be a
port of the original UCB UNIX but does that mean that I can get a book on
UNIX administration and apply that knowledge to a FreeBSD OS running on a
quad zeon or PIII server with Level 5 Raid?

Also, I have been doing quite a bit of research and have decided on the
following setup for a large database driven web service that we will be
undertaking and releasing under the General Public License. I would like any
input you have on the following core system I plan to implement.

Web Server: Apache Jserv & mod_perl & possibly (EMBPerl)
Database: Oracle 8.X

DNS: FreeBSD running BIND

Also, there is no User Group in Washington D.C. and we would like to start
one. I am currently an active member with several user groups involved with
the Windows NT technology including NTServer, Visual Interdev User Group
(WAVI), and MSSQL  User group. I Know of several dozen individuals that are
currently looking for alternatives to Micro$oft system. Please let me know
what I need to do to establish the Washington D.C. FreeBSD user group.

Thanks for you help in advance.

Kind Regards,
Chris Grady
