openSUSE Installation

Below are the recommended openSUSE system requirements to bemet to ensure smooth operation of openSUSE 11.3  :

Select Installation


Press 'Enter'


openSUSE is starting the installation


Click on "Next"


Select 'New Installation', then click on "Next"


Select you location , then click on "Next"


Select which desktop envirnment you would like to use.  You have a choice between KDE or GNOME.  For advanced users, you have the option of others of your choice.  For many Windows users, I ussually suggest KDE as the menu is more closely oriented like Windows and yet so VERY different from Windows.  If you wish to use a more different aproach, use gnome.  It is also well organized like KDE.


Select 'Partition Based' , then click on "Next"


Enter in the user's full name, and a username.  Also select and enter in a password of your choice.  


If you have enter in a simple password then you will receive the above message.  If you need help on selecting a good password, read this page on how to select a good password.  


If everything is to your liking, select "Install"


You must confirm so that you do not make any mistakes.  Click on "Install".  Notice how clever these programmers are.  They purposely removed "Next" and replaced the option "Back" instead.  Very nice indeed.


openSUSE is now installing itself.


At the top there are three tabs to keep you occupied during the installtion process.  The first tab is the "Slide Show" tab.  On this tab you will see the different benefits that openSUSE has to offer you .  The middle tab shows you the details of the installation.  The far right tab provides you with the release notes for the os.


Once the installation is completed, it time you now get to expreience Linux and the freedom you have.


You have logged into openSUSE and you can now do internet banking, surf the net with out the hassle of needing an antivirus program.
