DESKTOP INSTALLATION

installation may be a bit different for that purpose: all sets but

proceed with the server setup first, and then

DESKTOP POST-INSTALL

useradd -m -g users -G wheel ADMINUSER
vi /etc/sudoers #enable wheel
passwd ADMINUSER
vi /etc/lilo.conf # lba32 and 30 deciseconds
git config --global --replace-all core.pager 'less -r'

and more generally
