2.2.3. Installing from a Salix Installation Disc

Installing Salix from a Salix Installation optical disc is somewhat similar to installing Slackware, but the entire process is considerably shorter and less complicated. Everything is done efficiently in a semi-graphical command line interface.

To start the installation process, you may type setup (or press the up arrow on your keyboard to revoke the same command - useful if your actual keymap doesn't match the one that is used by default in the installer). Once the installer starts, you will be presented with several dialogs to customize the installation process. Here is what you will have to do:

Salix now uses sudo!

By default, the first user created has access to sudo, any others do not; to allow them access as well, they need to be added to the wheel group. The root user is disabled by default in Salix.
