Now that you have SUSE Linux on your PC, you'll no doubt want to get started immediately, and that's what Part Three of this book is all about. In later chapters, we'll examine specific details of using SUSE Linux and getting essential hardware up and running. We'll also look at personalizing SUSE Linux so that it works in a way that's best for you on a day-to-day basis. But right now, the goal of this chapter is to get you doing the same things you did under Windows as quickly as possible
This chapter looks at starting up SUSE Linux for the first time and working with the desktop. It also looks at how some familiar aspects of your computer, such as using the mouse, are slightly enhanced under SUSE Linux.
