Configuring Mac OS X 10.3

Configuring Mac OS X 10.3

After you install Mac OS X Panther, your computer restarts and displays the Setup Assistant, which helps you configure Panther to your specific needs. The Setup Assistant is a program that steps you through the process using a simple question and answer format. The information you enter is automatically used in System Preferences to customize your Mac OS X environment. The Setup Assistant allows you to configure options for personal identification, Internet account, telephone or DSL modem connection, network usage, e-mail account, and the date & time. Unfortunately, there is not a way to take screen shots of the configuration process, so illustrations are not available for the configuration parts.
