How "interact-able" are FBSD and (say) MacBook? E.g., is there a
"BSD-way" of my creating an account of the Apple and using is?
It's got @G of RAM, and a 160G drive [!]. Apple says in plain
text that is is UNIX. (or maybe Berkeley Unix).
So besides the mac firewall [whatever], the laptop will be
behind my pfSense box. So... --and to be completely honest, the
main reason for this >> $1000 laptop is *security*. When she was
younger I wasn't that concerned is some kiddie cracker learned
that her favorite pet was a kitty. Different now.
Another question: can I install X11 without it bothering whatever
kind of mac front-end windowing comes with? Be great if I could
admin this BSD-based computer from my office.

I also strongly encourage you to install MacPorts.org, when you
install x11 and xcode from the install media. There are methods of
adding users via CLI however since the Apple setup is rather
sophisticated I would recommend that you stick with the system
preferences panel to start with.
