  • Installing SUSE Linux with YaST

  • Logging In and Shutting Down the First Time

Installing SUSE Linux is a simple process. The SUSE Linux YaST application (Yet another Setup Tool) walks you through the process, detects and configures your hardware, and generally takes charge. In this chapter, you learn how to complete a basic installation of SUSE Linux using the CDs included with this book.

At this stage of the game, you're probably anxious to get started, but a brief introduction helps you make sure everything is ready. Then you can begin the installation and follow this chapter's advice all the way through.

By the end of the chapter, you will have logged in for the first time, ready to use SUSE Linux.

Methods of Installing SUSE Linux

SUSE Linux can be installed on a workstation through a plethora of possibilities. The installation can be done from a central server, across the network, or using any of the media types available (CD ROM/DVD).

Because this book includes the operating system on accompanying media, we will focus on installing it using those. While the method is different with the other types of installation, most follow the same steps and you can easily find information specific to those installations on the website.
