SUSE Linux 10.1 Kick Start is a quick, task-oriented electronic guide to installing, configuring, extending and troubleshooting the hot new SUSE Linux 10.1 distribution and its most important new features — including the awe-inspiring XGL 3D graphics for the desktop and handy NetManager utility for trouble-free wi-fi access anywhere.

Delivered in Adobe PDF format for quick and easy access, SUSE Linux 10.1 Kick Start is an electronic resource that clearly and concisely shows new SUSE 10.1 users how to get installation and configuration right the first time. No long and windy discussions of the politics of open source, no painfully slow walkthroughs of already intuitive desktop software — just a to-the-point, ultra-accessible guide showing the steps to take to successfully install and configure SUSE Linux 10.1 for desktop computing.
