     If you're looking for a truly easy way to get started, I'd like to
recommend you take a look at PC-BSD 8.0 (see www.pcbsd.org).  It seems
to take most people, beginners included, about 20 minutes to install and
get running.  A couple of days ago, a new book by Dru Lavigne was announced
on the freebsd-announce list.  I'll try to forward you a copy of the
announcement off this list.
