I'm fairly new to the *nix world but would like to try my hand at setting up a stand alone unix box with KDE desktop support. I would also like to take a stab at programming and have been searching for languages to learn. I was hoping to find something extremely powerful but easy to learn and have ran into Walter Bright's D Programming Language (http://www.digitalmars.com/d/) and its GCC port (http://home.earthlink.net/~dvdfrdmn/d/). Seems to be able to do the trick.

What does all this have to do with you? Well, I was hoping someone would point me in the right direction of how to setup DFBSD so that I can connect to the internet, and download the KDE desktop and how to the GCC version of D. Additionally, I was hoping for some guidance of the best way to set up my box I can experience the power of unix with a GUI safety net just in case I loose my way.

Thanks for your understanding and support.

I see that you are in the seek of the ultimate handbook! Luckily DragonFly can provide one :-) http://www.forknibbler.com/handbook/

Have Fun!
