503If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
504installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
505link="#useraccouts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
506go to a new terminal and log in.

510If you want to view the documentation on the CD you can immediately run
511<c>lynx</c> to read it:

519However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
520more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>lynx</c>
521as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
522chapter (otherwise you won't be able to go on the Internet to view the
523document):
