593If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
594installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
595link="#useraccounts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
596go to a new terminal and log in.

609However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
610more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links2</c>
611as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
