Chapter 1. Introducing Mac OS X > Setting Up Mac OS X

Setting Up Mac OS X

The first time Mac OS X starts, it runs Setup Assistant, which helps you set up the basic features of the operating system. During the setup procedure, your network settings are configured and your registration details are sent back to Apple.

Creating Your Account

Mac OS X requires you to create an account for one user during the setup process. You can add other user accounts later, but the original account is an administrator account, which is used to control access to the system and to prevent unauthorized changes from being made to your software.
