A few seconds after starting the installation, SuSE Linux loads a minimal Linux system, which takes control and performs the installation. A number of messages and copyright notices are displayed then, at the end of the loading process, the YaST installation program is started. After a few more seconds, the screen should display the graphical interface that will guide you through the installation.

The YaST screens have a common format. All buttons, entry fields, and lists can be accessed with the mouse. If your mouse pointer does not move, the mouse has not been correctly detected. In this case, use the keyboard for navigation.
