Burn the disc
Once you've downloaded SLAMPP, you have to burn it to a CD. The .iso that you download is a copy of what should be on the disc. You can't just burn it to a disc as a file, as you normally would. To burn ISO files, use your favorite burning software and burn the .iso to the CD by using a special feature in your software. You should be able to find a "Burn image to CD" option or "Burn CD iso image" option. Check the programs help files if you can't find the option, and if you're still stuck, please don't hesitate to contact the author.
Below are some how to's of burning .iso:
Set up your BIOS to boot from CD
To enter the BIOS, you need to hit a certain key right away when your computer starts. This key should be found in your manual. Otherwise, you can try common ones such as the Delete key, or F1, F2, or a bunch of other of the Function keys.
Another way of booting from the CD is by using something called Smart Boot Manager. This goes onto a floppy which boots and allows you to choose where to boot from. This is probably the easiest way for a beginner or someone who can't find out how to enter the BIOS. You can choose the CD through this way. You can download it at http://slampp.abangadek.com/files/floppy.img.gz∞
(the file floppy.img.gz is also on the CD, in FLOPPY/ directory, the user don't need to download it from internet) Once you've downloaded it, extract it and then use rawrite in Windows/DOS to write to a floppy. (rawrite is also in the same directory on the CD) In Linux, use the dd command. Insert this into your computer and restart. Make sure the SLAMPP CD is in your CD drive and select it from the boot menu.
Put the CD in the drive and restart your computer
It's easy to use SLAMPP. Just insert SLAMPP live CD in to the CD-ROM drive right after your personal computer starts, wait a few moments until you see the splash image of SLAMPP showing off and then press Enter
. That's it. You might not be interested what is happening after this, except you would like to know more how the live CD exactly runs.
When SLAMPP has finished its booting process and started all server daemons, you will be asked for username and password for administering the whole system. In this case, use the following information:
After logging in, the real work can begin. You may use X-Window system to ease your experience using SLAMPP or just stay with command line. Please be free to choose which is the best method for you. In case you need to start with X-Window system, type startx
and SLAMPP will use Xfce 4.2.x∞
as its standard Desktop Environment.
