589If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
590installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri

592go to a new terminal and log in.

606more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links2</c>
607as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
