2. Prepare your PC for booting from CD/DVD ROM. Maybe your PC is already configured like that. If it doesn’t boot from CDROM, then go to BIOS and find an option that says something like “Boot order” and select CD/DVD for first boot device, and second device Hard Disk. Save the BIOS options and exit. Now installer DVD should boot from DVD ROM.
3. You will see this screen if you can boot from CD/DVD. But without “Machine,View,Devices and Help” and bottom icons. I used virtual machine for making documentation so just ignore this.
4. When live OS boots, double-click on Install Linux Mint icon.
5. Chose your language, timezone, keyboard layout and enter user details.
8. Enter your Name, username, password and hostname. Hostname is just name how your machine will be called. Spaces and funny characters are not allowed. Just type something like audio-machine.
9. Choose where to install Linux Mint.
10. Now you have to create partitions. If you have some old partitions left, remove it all. Remember, this will erase your ALL DATA on this disk! So be careful if you have some data on this PC that you want to preserve. Go back and forward again, and you should see this screen. It will ask you: “Do you want the installer to create a set of partitions for you?” Choose “Yes”. If you want to install it next to Windows or on some other partitions created before, this screen will be different. For complete documentation on how to partition and install in Linux Mint, consult official Linux Mint documentation or find some local Linux guru if it’s to hard for you.
11. The installer will auto create standard partitions for you.
12. Now assign a root partition. Right-click on your ext4 partition and assign to “/” (root). Click Forward.
13. Install Grub.
14. Summary. Click Install.
16. After successful install you have to restart your system.
17. Eject the DVD from drive.
18. The system will now boot and GRUB prompt will appear. Just leave as it is or press ENTER and system will boot real-time kernel. Don’t mind if you don’t have 3.8.10 kernel. The picture is old and from other version.
19. If everything is OK, you will get to login screen.
20. Congratulations! You have installed Linux on your box! Now you can choose which window manager you want to use. First use your username and password to login to default window manager Cinnamon, so Linux can create standard files and directories. Then you log-off and login to Fluxbox window manager. This is where the magic is happening :-).
How to listen to your music is explained on the playing audio page.
