      <p>FreeBSD is a 4.4 BSD Lite based operating system for Intel
      architecture (x86) based PCs.  For an overview of FreeBSD, see
      <ref id="nutshell" name="FreeBSD in a nutshell">.  For a
      history of the project, read <ref id="history"
      name="a brief history of FreeBSD">.  To see a description of the
      latest release, read <ref id="relnotes"
      name="about the current release">.  If you're interested
      in contributing something to the FreeBSD project (code, equipment,
      sacks of unmarked bills), please see about <ref id="submitters"
      name="contributing to FreeBSD">.

    <p>If your connection to the Internet is through a modem, or
    you wish to provide other people with dialup connections to
    the Internet using FreeBSD, you have the option of using PPP
    or SLIP.  Furthermore, two varieties of PPP are provided:
    <em>user</em> (sometimes referred to as iijppp) and
    <em>kernel</em>.  The procedures for configuring both types
    of PPP, and for setting up SLIP are described in this
    chapter.
