<h2 id="FirstSteps">First Steps</h2>
<p>
Getting the <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a> started doesn't take much:
</p>
<ol><li>You need an old Computer (at least 100MHz, 48MB RAM) (rule of thumb: bought at least after 1996). This PC needs a network card, a CD-ROM drive and a huge harddisk.
<ul><li>Well the disk doesn't need to be huge, it should just suit your filestorage needs ;)
</li><li>You don't need a monitor or a keyboard to use your <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a> (with one exception, see below).
</li><li>Of course, you may use a faster computer, but they usually consume much more energy and do not provide signifcant advantages.
</li></ul></li><li>Then download the latest version of the <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a> as an iso-image and burn this image onto a CD.
<ul><li><a class="ext-link" title="http://codecoop.org/projects/cryptobox/" href="http://codecoop.org/projects/cryptobox/">http://codecoop.org/projects/cryptobox/</a>
</li></ul></li><li>Configure your PC, so it can boot from the CD. Therefore you have to enter the BIOS and configure the CD-ROM as boot device.
</li><li>Insert the shiny new <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a> CD you've just burned and start the computer.
</li></ol><p>
If it now boots from the CD, you accomplished all of the requirements.
</p>
<p>
Now you can just go to your current desktop computer and point your browser to <a class="ext-link" title="https://192.168.0.23" href="https://192.168.0.23">https://192.168.0.23</a> where the <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a> interface should be displayed. Easy - isn't it?
</p>

<h2 id="HintsCaveats">Hints / Caveats</h2>
<p>
</p>
<ul><li>Maybe you need to change the network address (IP) of your PC to configure the <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a> for the first time. Ask someone for help, if you don't know how and why ...
</li><li>If you're going to buy a new harddisk keep in mind that very old hardware can't handle current disk sizes!
</li><li>Some old PCs are not able to boot from CD.
</li><li>If you don't know what a BIOS is, better ask someone, before you try to change something. ;)
</li><li>Don't forget to connect your PC to your local area network!
</li><li>To configure the BIOS, you need a keyboard and a monitor. But this has to be done only once.
