I am VERY new to freebsd. I mean so new you can still smell the vinyl.
I have a freebsd box and want to learn some stuff. bought the unix for
dummies book but not much help so far.
Anyway I want to try to setup a program called MRTG.
i have downloaded the files needed to my nt machine. and will ftp them over.
My first question is
what directory should they go in or does it matter ?
I downloade one of the programs need to run this Mrtg and did what the
instructions said but i get the error
message "usr/include/malloc.h:2:warning #warning :this file includes
(malloc.h) which is obsoleted,us (stdlib.h) instead.
What ?!?!!!. For a newbie this is getting frustrating. 
also tar files. are they compressed or uncompressed ?
A pointer to a really good beginner book or site would be greatly
