333If not all hardware is supported out-of-the-box, you will need to load the
334appropriate kernel modules.
335</p>
336
337<p>
338In the next example we try to load the <c>8139too</c> module (support for
339certain kinds of network interfaces):

349<title>Optional: User Accounts</title>
350<body>
351
352<p>
353If you plan on giving other people access to your installation
354environment or you want to chat using <c>irssi</c> without root privileges (for
355security reasons), you need to create the necessary user accounts and change
356the root password.
357</p>
358
359<p>
360To change the root password, use the <c>passwd</c> utility:
361</p>
362
363<pre caption="Changing the root password">
364# <i>passwd</i>
365New password: <comment>(Enter your new password)</comment>
366Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter your password)</comment>
367</pre>
368
369<p>
370To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
371its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.
372In the next example, we create a user called &quot;john&quot;.
373</p>
374
375<pre caption="Creating a user account">
376# <i>useradd -m -G users john</i>
377# <i>passwd john</i>
378New password: <comment>(Enter john's password)</comment>
379Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter john's password)</comment>
380</pre>
381
382<p>
383You can change your user id from root to the newly created user by using
384<c>su</c>:
385</p>
386
387<pre caption="Changing user id">
388# <i>su - john</i>

394<title>Optional: Viewing Documentation while Installing</title>
395<body>
396 331
397<p>
398If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
399installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
400link="#useraccounts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
401go to a new terminal and log in.
402</p>
403
404<p>
405If you want to view the documentation on the CD you can immediately run
406<c>links</c> to read it:
407</p>
408
409<pre caption="Viewing the on-CD documentation">
410# <i>links /mnt/cdrom/docs/handbook/html/index.html</i>
411</pre>
412
413<p>
414However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
415more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links</c>
416as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
417chapter (otherwise you won't be able to go on the Internet to view the
418document):
419</p>
420
421<pre caption="Viewing the Online Documentation">
422# <i>links http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/<keyval id="online-book"/></i>
423</pre>
424
425<p>
426You can go back to your original terminal by pressing <c>Alt-F1</c>.

432<title>Optional: Starting the SSH Daemon</title>
433<body>
434
435<p>
436If you want to allow other users to access your computer during the
437Gentoo installation (perhaps because those users are going to help you
438install Gentoo, or even do it for you), you need to create a user
439account for them and perhaps even provide them with your root password
440(<e>only</e> do that <e>if</e> you <b>fully trust</b> that user).
441</p>
442
443<p>
444To fire up the SSH daemon, execute the following command:
445</p>
446
447<pre caption="Starting the SSH daemon">
448# <i>/etc/init.d/sshd start</i>
449</pre>
450
451<p>
452To be able to use sshd, you first need to set up your networking. Continue with
453the chapter on <uri link="?part=1&amp;chap=3">Configuring your Network</uri>.
