Linux - Jnos Setup and Configuration HOW-TO
By John Martin KF8KK
Starting Up Linux
|As your machine comes up you will be greeted by the
operating system selection screen. Hit the up/down arrows to
higlight LINUX and hit the ENTER key.
You'll see Linux scroll a whole bunch of text across the screen, this is normal. It's also somewhat normal to see some warnings or errors float across amongst the text. Linux is trying to probe and load drivers for all sorts of devices, some of which you do not have on your computer. You would need to recompile your kernel to shorten up this part of the process and remove errors or warnings. For now, watch what goes by and if something looks suspicious make a note of it but don't worry yet.
If all goes well, when it finishes loading Linux you should see a LOGIN prompt at the bottom.
Type 'root' and then when it asks for the password, type in the root password that you had selected earlier.
You should now be logged in with it showing the 'Linux 2.4.29 kernel' and the 'You have new mail' line. The prompt should be root@hostname.
|Now, let's see how lucky you are by pinging the internet
type "ping " and then the IP address of the gateway. In my case it's 'ping 192.168.1.1'. If the network card is working properly you should start seeing responses coming back. Hit 'CTRL-C' to stop the pinging.
|We now proceed to installing Jnos on your new Linux system.|
