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.

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>
