you will have to use a secnd computer that is hooked to your network.  
open firefox and enter the ip address in the address bar 
(  login as root and enter the password you set 
during the install.  If you are familiar with Webadmin you should be 
able to get the feel of the Proxmox setup.  Also do your self a favor 
and bone up on your VLAN knowledge.  Understanding bridging and bonding 
will be very helpfull.
