This chapter explains how to perform a Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation using the graphical, mouse-based installation program. The following topics are discussed:
Becoming familiar with the installation program's user interface
If you have used a graphical user interface (GUI) before, you are already familiar with this process; use your mouse to navigate the screens, click buttons, or enter text fields.
You can also navigate through the installation using the keyboard. The Tab key allows you to move around the screen, the Up and Down arrow keys to scroll through lists, + and - keys expand and collapse lists, while Space and Enter selects or removes from selection a highlighted item. You can also use the Alt+X key command combination as a way of clicking on buttons or making other screen selections, where X is replaced with any underlined letter appearing within that screen.
虽然有关文本模式安装的说明不是十分充分，使用文本模式安装的用户仍旧可以遵循图形化安装说明来获得所需信息。需要注意的是，LVM（Logical Volume Management，逻辑卷管理）磁盘容量的操作只有在图形模式下才能进行。在文本模式下，只能查看和接受缺省的 LVM 设置。
