This project is aimed to provide a quick introduction to the NetBSD OS, using a document describing how to install and setup a full and clean NetBSD system in few minutes on your computer.

This is aimed to people who wants to learn how to use NetBSD, as a "crash-course". Although for end-users, Office-BSD ( might be more appropriate.

The documentation will be divided in 3 main parts : 1) Basic Install -> Usual install of NetBSD 2) Software Packages -> How to install and use pkgsrc 3) Customization -> How to keep your NetBSD up-to-date, How to enable 3D HW Acceleration, etc.

The documentation contains some advises depending if you target your computer to be a server, a simple desktop computer, or a powerfull development/game platform.

The documentation is to be valid from NetBSD 3.0 and hopefully will be kept up-to-date along the evolution of NetBSD.

The documentation will come along with sh scripts completely free to use as you want to automate some usefull administration task.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
