BSD manpages are in my opinion without peer - they are the (almost) primary reason i prefer bsd's over linux (standardisation and code clarity being the other).
The BSD faq is an amazing piece of documentation, second only to the freebsd handbook (again in my opinion).
However the overwhelming number of linux users over bsd desktop users precipitates an abundance of documentation. Not that openbsd is lacking, just that you can trip over linux docs in any given google search, while iv found myself having to look a little closer to get usable supplementary information that is openbsd specific, although i understand the rationale that everything you really need is in the man pages and faq.
Still i thought it would be fun excerise to try and collate useful sources of documentation, so newb's like myself can find things a little easier. Id like to hear of any documentation that has proved useful to the more experienced users out there.
In a way this is more of a way for to keep track of useful links i come across, but in the spirit of freedom i thought why not put it into the public domain.
As way of a start, here's somethings that iv found invaluable -
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/Redbooks...l?OpenDocument BIG but worthwhile, still not even into the core of it myself, but as a support to the "understanding ip addressing" document mentioned in the faq its incredibly extensive.
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/design-44bsd/ just one of the many docs you can pick up on the freebsd website so probably well known by everyone on this forum, but i singled it out as its a great way of abstracting every bsd variants inner workings.
http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~mdw/cou...douts/cvs.html nothing useful to the more experienced openbsd admin but for a lone desktop user like myself is a great way to (gently) begin understanding the potential of the CMS model used in openbsd developement.
http://forums.techarena.in/guides-tutorials/1122109.htm a very simple abstraction on firewall rule methodolgy, there is probably more throurough/correct docs out there, anyone know of any?
Also the pf links carpetsmoker lists here are well worth a look
