While the overall design of the Linux Migration Project is to cover one topic per chapter, this chapter contains mostly a grab bag of assorted topics which you really should know so that subsequent chapters make more sense.
So while we'll touch on things like the login sequence, how to use the virtual consoles, setting a search path, basic configuration of the X Window System, networking, software installation and more, these are only brief introductions which will definitely be covered in more detail later in the documentation. In other words, be patient.
And so, without further ado, what we consider the essentials.
