Hey Jaret & Todd, you guys you got me turned on to Proxmox, even tho 
learning and installing VM was down on the list but I thought man if I 
can get this going I can make the rest of what I want to do easier and 
faster. Creating the justification went well...  However.....

I have Proxmox installed to the point where i can sign in as root to 
point my browser to my IP address ..... I haven't a clue how to do 
this??  What browser?

1. Do I apt get one of Linux browsers?

2. Which one would you recommend?

3. Would you please pass me the code to enter as 'root' on Proxmox 
install CLI  to get that configuration page shown in the install video 
'' is what gets echoed to the screen.

4.  I also did not know what to use for the domain so I named it 
Velf-herb.windstream.net  (windstream is my DSL IP) Was this correct?

I can launch my browser in Ubuntu-8.04 by opening a terminal and typing 
'firefox' but entering firefox in the Proxmox CLI says no such command. 
being logged in as root I am nervous standing there giving commands.

Anyway I sure would appreciate it if you would guide me tru getting this 
install running.
thanks herb
