337If not all hardware is supported out-of-the-box, you will need to load the
338appropriate kernel modules.

342In the next example we try to load the <c>8139too</c> module (support for
343certain kinds of network interfaces):

355
356<p>
357If you plan on giving other people access to your installation
358environment or you want to chat using <c>irssi</c> without root privileges (for
359security reasons), you need to create the necessary user accounts and change
360the root password.
361</p>
362
363<p>
364To change the root password, use the <c>passwd</c> utility:
365</p>
366
367<pre caption="Changing the root password">
368# <i>passwd</i>
369New password: <comment>(Enter your new password)</comment>
370Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter your password)</comment>
371</pre>
372
373<p>
374To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
375its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.
376In the next example, we create a user called &quot;john&quot;.
377</p>
378
379<pre caption="Creating a user account">
380# <i>useradd -m -G users john</i>
381# <i>passwd john</i>

383Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter john's password)</comment>
384</pre>
385
386<p>
387You can change your user id from root to the newly created user by using
388<c>su</c>:

401<p>
402If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
403installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
404link="#useraccounts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
405go to a new terminal and log in.
406</p>
407
408<p>
409If you want to view the documentation on the CD you can immediately run
410<c>links</c> to read it:
411</p>
412
413<pre caption="Viewing the on-CD documentation">
414# <i>links /mnt/cdrom/docs/handbook/html/index.html</i>
415</pre>
416
417<p>
418However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
419more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links</c>
420as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
421chapter (otherwise you won't be able to go on the Internet to view the
422document):
423</p>
424
425<pre caption="Viewing the Online Documentation">
426# <i>links http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/<keyval id="online-book"/></i>
427</pre>
428
429<p>
430You can go back to your original terminal by pressing <c>Alt-F1</c>.

436<title>Optional: Starting the SSH Daemon</title>
437<body>
438
439<p>
440If you want to allow other users to access your computer during the
441Gentoo installation (perhaps because those users are going to help you
442install Gentoo, or even do it for you), you need to create a user
443account for them and perhaps even provide them with your root password
444(<e>only</e> do that <e>if</e> you <b>fully trust</b> that user).
445</p>
446
447<p>
448To fire up the SSH daemon, execute the following command:
449</p>
450
451<pre caption="Starting the SSH daemon">
452# <i>/etc/init.d/sshd start</i>
453</pre>
454
455<p>
456To be able to use sshd, you first need to set up your networking. Continue with
457the chapter on <uri link="?part=1&amp;chap=3">Configuring your Network</uri>.
