FreeBSD Handbook and FAQ/9.2
PC-BSD uses FreeBSD as its underlying operating system, so everything in theand applies to PC-BSD as well. Both documents are very comprehensive and cover nearly every task you can accomplish on a FreeBSD system. They are also an excellent resource for learning how things work "under the hood" of your PC-BSD system.
NOTE: some configurations described in the FreeBSD Handbook already "just work" on your PC-BSD system as they have been pre-configured for you. In these instances, reading that FreeBSD Handbook section can help you to understand how your system is configured and why it works.
