Addendum to 10.3 Handbook - Section 2.4 Paragraph 6: DVD Images and USB images are now their own separate images, and are not considered "hybrid" images any longer.

Addendum to 10.3 Handbook - Section 2.5.4 Paragraph 5: These instructions still apply but users will need to make sure they download and use this command instead to install a USB image to a USB flash drive :

"dd if=PCBSD10.3-RELEASE-03-31-2016-x64-USB.img of=/dev/da0 bs=1M" (without quotes)

The PC-BSD Project publishes a User Guide with each version of PC-BSD. The User Guide that matches the released version is included as an icon on the PC‑BSD® desktop. In addition, this page provides an archive of every version of the Users Handbook.

NOTE: since every release of PC-BSD introduces new features, be sure to refer to the User Guide that matches your installed version of PC-BSD.

If you would like to assist in the creation of the User Guide, refer to the instructions in the Docs README.

If you would like to assist in the translation of the User Guide into your native language, refer to the "Become a Translator" section in the latest version of the User Guide.
