  setup	- invokes a system setup menu for console and workstation displays
  without graphics capabilities




  Use this application to do initial installation and configuration of your
  system. You must have	superuser or root privileges to	invoke the Setup

  If your system does not have graphics	capabilities, or if you	are using a
  remote character-cell	terminal window	such as	a PC terminal emulator,	 use
  the Setup menu to invoke the Custom Setup menu and use its various system
  setup	applications to	set up your Tru64 UNIX system for general use.

  In this release, invoking Setup runs the Custom Setup	interfaces, which are
  character-cell variants of the SysMan	tools that you can use to configure
  and manage your system.  These interfaces can	also be	invoked	in a window
  environment on a PC or on other X-compliant window environments. The avail-
  able menu options depend on which subsets were installed during system
  installation.	Refer to the Methods chapter of	the System Administration for
  additional information.

  In previous releases,	invoking the Setup menu	provided access	to scripts
  which	prompted you to	enter configuration information, such as a TCP/IP
  address during network configuration (netsetup). These scripts enabled you
  to set up subsystems -- networking, printers,	and mail, add user accounts,
  install Product Authorization	Keys (PAKs), and so on.

  If you require the original scripts to support your site-specific setup
  procedures, you can install the scripts as described in the relevant refer-
  ence page for	a script.  Refer to the	Installation Guide For information on
  installing the OSRETIREDxxx subsets.

  Using	Quick Setup

  If your system has graphics capabilities, the	preferred method to perform
  system setup is through the Custom Setup Checklist as	follows:

    +  After a full installation,  the Quick Setup interface is	displayed
       automatically.	Quick Setup is a step-by-step procedure	that prompts
       you for the basic  information required to configure your system	for
       use.   This option is particularly convenient and fast for a desktop
       system, and for users who are not very experienced in configuring sys-
       tems. Note that Quick Setup is primarily	used to	configure the network
       and related subsystems. You may also need to manually configure other
       subsystems or add options later.	 (For example, If your system is a
       client in a client-server environment, you may need to re-run certain
       applications later to add alternative host servers.) To do this,	you
       use the Custom Setup described in the next section.

    +  At any other time after installation, the Custom	Setup Checklist	is
       provided	for initial configuration or modification of a subsystem. You
       can still opt for an automated Quick Setup, or choose Custom Setup for
       larger system configurations or specific	site requirements.  Custom
       Setup allows you	to select applications from the	checklist by clicking
       on the corresponding icon.   When you choose an application, the
       appropriate application from the	Custom Setup menu will be invoked.

       To invoke the Custom Setup Checklist from the command line, enter

  Note that online help	is available when using	the interfaces,	and you
  should refer to the appropriate user guides in the documentation set for
  additional information.


  This example invokes the Setup menu from the root system prompt:

       # /usr/sbin/setup

  A menu similar to the	following is displayed:

		       Tru64 UNIX:  Custom Setup

       Tru64 UNIX Custom Setup helps you set up	your system.

       Quick Setup leads you through a set of steps to set up a	typical	UNIX
       system. This includes networking, user services,	time services, printers,
       and other basics.

       Custom Setup examines your system and lists the relevant	tasks for
       configuring your	computer. These	tasks are listed in the	order most
       frequently performed

       You can run Quick Setup to get a	basic configuration and	then use Custom
       Setup for any atypical configuration settings.

       1) Quick	Setup
       2) Custom Setup
       3) Exit

       Please enter your selection:

  If you select	Quick Setup, an	Initializing message is	displayed for several
  seconds, followed by the first prompt	screen:

				  Tru64	UNIX: Quick Setup
       Quick Setup helps you set up a typical UNIX system.

       It leads	you step by step through the following common tasks:
       Step 1: Enter basic license information
       Step 2: Set up the system's Network Interface Card (NIC)
       Step 3: Set up static network routing
       Step 4: Specify a Domain	Name Service (DNS/BIND)	server
       Step 5: Specify a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server
       Step 6: Specify a Network Information Service (NIS) server
       Step 7: Set up Network File System (NFS)	services
       Step 8: Specify an E-Mail server
       Step 9: Specify a default printer and its server
       You can skip any	step. No action	is performed until you review
       and approve a summary of	the setup at the end of	Quick Setup.

       Click on	"Details..." to	see the	information Quick Setup	requests.

       Click on	"Next >>" to start setting up this system.

  If you select	Custom Setup,  a menu  similar to the following	is displayed:
