60 <a name="network"></a>
61 <h3>Network connections</h3>
62 <p>
63 Click on the "Network Status Monitor" at the bottom right of the screen,
64 "Configure" and then the network manager (netbox) will come up. You can
65 go to the "DHCP" tab and click "Start", and Slitaz will send a DHCP request
66 to the local router. You may also setup a static IP, PPPoE, PPP, VPN and
67 more using their respective tabs. To configure a wireless connection you
68 can use SliTaz wifibox by clicking "Wireless Manager" in the Network Manager
69 or by using the "System Tools" menu entry -> "Wireless networks connections".
70 </p>

72 More detailed information can be found in the Handbook:

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