59 <h2><font color="#DF8F06">Getting started</font></h2>
61 <a name="network"></a>
62 <h3>Network connections</h3>
63 <p>
64 Click on the "Network Status Monitor" at the bottom right of the screen, then
65 "Configure" and the network manager (netbox) will come up. You can then
66 go to the "DHCP" tab and click "Start", and Slitaz will send a DHCP request
67 to the local router. You may also setup a static IP, PPPoE, PPP, VPN and
68 more options using their respective tabs. To configure a wireless connection you
69 can use SliTaz wifibox by clicking "Wireless Manager" in the Network Manager
70 or by using the "System Tools" menu entry -> "Wireless networks connections".
71 </p>
72 <p>
73 More detailed information can be found in the Handbook:

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