69 <p>
70 Click on the "Network Status Monitor" at the bottom right of the screen, then
71 "Configure" and the network manager (netbox) will come up. You can then
72 go to the "DHCP" tab and click "Start", and Slitaz will send a DHCP request
73 to the local router. You may also setup a static IP, PPPoE, PPP, VPN and
74 more options using their respective tabs. To configure a wireless connection you
75 can use SliTaz wifibox by clicking "Wireless Manager" in the Network Manager
76 or by using the "System Tools" menu entry -> "Wireless networks connections".

85 <h3>Applications</h3>
86 <p>
87 To have a list of all graphical applications you can use the SliTaz menu button
88 at the bottom left of the screen. To have a list of command line tools, you
89 can open a terminal and double press on the tabulation button. And to have
90 a list of all installed packages you can launch the package manager user interface
91 from the Lxpanel icon or by using the "System Tools" menu entry. To install any new packages
92 you must have a network connection, the DVD of packages or an USB storage device
93 with downloaded packages. Naturally any package management
94 can also be done from the command line and <code>tazpkg</code>.
95 </p>
97 <a name="office"></a>
98 <h3>Office suite</h3>
99 <p>
100 The SliTaz packages database provides some lightweight office applications.
101 All of these packages are easily installable in a few clicks through the packages
102 manager. SliTaz also provides a simple way to install the powerful
103 OpenOffice suite: just search for "OpenOffice" in the packages manager, double click
104 on "get-OpenOffice3" and install the script with the <code>Auto exec</code> option
105 enabled.
106 </p>
107 <p>
108 To have a lightweight office suite; use: Abiword as Word processor, Gnumeric as
109 Spreadsheet and Homebank for Bank Accounting.
110 </p>
112 <a name="multimedia"></a>
113 <h3>Multimedia</h3>
114 <p>
115 Most SliTaz flavors include a wide range of sound card drivers, a volume
116 mixer and a light audio player to easily listen to any MP3 or OGG files. The Sound
117 card is autodetected at boot time and audio support works out-of-the-box
118 on many systems. If you manually add a new user and can't listen to audio, please
119 check that the user belongs to the <code>audio</code> group. For any other trouble please
120 look into the full documentation and/or use the forum.
121 </p>
122 <p>
123 Videos can be watched by installing one single package or using a dedicated
124 LiveCD or LiveUSB system. The SliTaz team have packaged some of the best video players
125 available under GNU/Linux: <code>mplayer</code>, <code>xine-ui</code> and <code>vlc</code>
126 </p>
128 <a name="info"></a>
129 <h3>System information</h3>
130 <p>
131 You can get information on your system by clicking on "System information"
132 in the System Tools menu, then "Summary". Clicking on the other
133 buttons brings you more information, and using the benchmarks
134 gives you an idea on how fast your computer is. To have a list and control
135 of all your current processes you can use the "Task Manager".
136 </p>
138 <a name="root"></a>
139 <h3>Becoming Root</h3>
140 <p>
141 By default, Slitaz doesn't have its desktop running as root administrator:
142 it asks for a root password (default <code>root</code>) for any superuser work.
143 Therefore, it is safer and more secure. To become root in an xterm, simply
144 type <code>su</code>, and enter the root password.
145 </p>
147 <a name="install"></a>
148 <h3>Installation</h3>
149 <p>
150 SliTaz can be installed to a hard disk or on an USB mass storage device using the
151 "SliTaz Installer" from the "System Tools" menu. The installer makes a full HD install.
152 SliTaz won't work in memory (RAM) anymore like in Live or Frugal mode and
153 everything is persistent.
154 </p>
155 <p>
156 To generate a LiveUSB system you can use the "Tazusb LiveUSB Tool" from the "System Tools"
157 menu or <code>tazusb</code> from the command line. More information can be found in the SliTaz
158 Handbook: <a href="">LiveUSB media</a>
