It would of course have to start with the differences between linux and 
stock BSD (e.g. "ls foo -l" vs "ls -l foo" and of course "gls foo -l".)  
In my (a bit limited) experience, BSD is just like linux with some of 
the conveniences removed and Mac is just like BSD minus some 

I could contribute observations about WxPerl and persistent NFS mounts 
on the Mac, but not much else at the moment.

It should finish by covering installation of linux on intel macs :-)
