Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I will wait for my local mirror to sync, but I am curious about this.
From the new rc.inet1.conf file:
# Example of how to configure a bridge:
# Note the added "BRNICS" variable which contains a space-separated list
# of the physical network interfaces you want to add to the bridge.
Setting up a bridged interface will be helpful to get a virtual machine connected to the network. For some scenarios a bridge works better than a NAT solution - a bridged network connection will allow your VM's to be accessible from the network so that you can run network services inside the VM.
See my rc.vdenetwork script for an example of how to setup a bridged configuration which uses VDE to connect virtual machines (QEMU in my case) to the LAN.
This is the configuration I use to build all my packages.
