UBUNTU - Install log

[ Read this story alone ]

I've installing linux for so many but today I realize i need to log on this... i'm getting older...

This log has been logged step by step for UBUNTU 8.04x..

1. after finish install

As default Ubuntu has no password set for the root user. To gain root access you have to type in your own user password. This is the password you set for the first user while installing Ubuntu.

To manually set a password for the root user, type in the following in the shell:

sudo passwd

After that you are asked to type in the new root password twice. Finally, your root user has its own password.

2. check this software updated ot install it if not in
as root

apt-get install wget
apt-get install lynx

both for getting some file by using command at linux bash.. lynx is text browser..
