+Preface
+#######
+
+This document describes the RTEMS specific parts of the FreeBSD TCP/IP
+stack. Much of this documentation was written by Eric Norum
+(eric@skatter.usask.ca)
+of the Saskatchewan Accelerator Laboratory
+who also ported the FreeBSD TCP/IP stack to RTEMS.
+
+The following is a list of resources which should be useful in trying
+to understand Ethernet:
+
+- *Charles Spurgeon’s Ethernet Web Site*
+ "This site provides extensive information about Ethernet
+ (IEEE 802.3) local area network (LAN) technology. Including
+ the original 10 Megabit per second (Mbps) system, the 100 Mbps
+ Fast Ethernet system (802.3u), and the Gigabit Ethernet system (802.3z)."
+ The URL is:
+ (http://www.ethermanage.com/ethernet/ethernet.html)
+
+- *TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1 : The Protocols* by
+ by W. Richard Stevens (ISBN: 0201633469)
+ This book provides detailed introduction to TCP/IP and includes diagnostic
+ programs which are publicly available.
+
+- *TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2 : The Implementation* by W. Richard
+ Stevens and Gary Wright (ISBN: 020163354X)
+ This book focuses on implementation issues regarding TCP/IP. The
+ treat for RTEMS users is that the implementation covered is the BSD
+ stack with most of the source code described in detail.
+
+- *UNIX Network Programming, Volume 1 : 2nd Edition* by W. Richard
+ Stevens (ISBN: 0-13-490012-X)
+ This book describes how to write basic TCP/IP applications, again with primary
+ focus on the BSD stack.
