3.6. How Do I Start the Installation Program?
To start the installation program from minimal boot media, the
rescue CD, or the distribution DVD, follow this procedure:
You may need to hit a specific key or combination of keys to
boot from the media, or configure your system's Basic
Input/Output System, or BIOS, to
boot from the media. On most computers you must select the boot
or BIOS option promptly after turning on the computer. Most
Windows-compatible computer systems use a special key such as
F1, F2, F12, or
Del to start the BIOS configuration menu. On
Apple computers, the C key boots the system from
the DVD drive.
