Advice for a newbie

Where is a good place for NetBSD documentation. I do have unix experience with FreeBSD and I love the handbook for that operating system. Does NetBSD have anything similiar like a kitchen sink for the OS?

Unfortunately I have limited time due to work and I wonder how long and how much work NetBSD is to setup? Basically I am looking for a quality Linux-free and FreeBSD-free os that is rock solid. FreeBSD takes awhile as well without the handbook but I have programs like sysinstall to help me out. Does NetBSD have any ethernet and network configuration tools like sysinstall, or is it old-school, meaning firing up vi and edit files in /etc to get anything done?

Also how hard is it to setup Java on NetBSD? Is java supported or semi supported? Thanks
