501If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
502installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
503link="#useraccouts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
504go to a new terminal and log in.

508If you want to view the documentation on the CD you can immediately run

517However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
518more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links2</c>
519as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
