It was deleted.  If you had looked at the accompanying README file,
this was a pre-publication draft for review only (and it contained a
*lot* of errors)--thanks to the guys who reviewed it instead of
ripping

No, it's not there, and it shouldn't be put there.

Please destroy the document.  First, it's incorrect, and secondly,
it's in violation of Walnut Creek copyright.

Sorry to have to be so heavy-handed about this, but if people abuse
this draft, it will be more difficult for me to post review drafts in
future.  On a more positive note, we're working on putting a correct
version of the documentation in the online handbook.  It's taking a
while (I'm not doing it myself), but I hope that the person doing it
will find time over Thanksgiving.  In the meantime, it's in "The
Complete FreeBSD", available from Walnut Creek CDROM.
