It is an eminently practical guidebook that explains not only how to get a computer up and running with the FreeBSD operating system, but also how to turn it into a highly functional and secure server that can host large numbers of users and disks, support remote access, and provide web service, mail service, and other key parts of the Internet infrastructure

>The Linux Security Cookbook includes real solutions to a wide range of targeted problems, such as sending encrypted email within Emacs, restricting access to network services at particular times of day, firewalling a webserver, preventing IP spoofing, setting up key-based SSH authentication, and much more. With over 150 ready-to-use scripts and configuration files, this unique book helps administrators secure their systems without having to look up specific syntax.

i actually pre-ordered "The Complete FreeBSD, 4th ed." and I've gotta 
say the book is great!  Is that too short of a review ;)  I will 
actaully try to make a more comprehensive review based on my experience 
integrating FreeBSD into our network, and how this volume has helped me 
in doing that.  So, should these reviews be written in Abiword and sent 
as an attachment to the list, or would you all rather have them sent 
inline via email?
