After first seeing the SmartWare Plus installation manual, I thought I was surely doomed. The manual itself, being about an inch and a half thick, appeared to promise a long and intensive installation. I was pleasantly surprised to find it quite the opposite.

The installation went very smoothly. The installation manual was very straightforward and told me exactly what I needed to do. All in all, I was able to install it in less than an hour's time with only one or two small hang-ups. Configuring X11 within SmartWare Plus is, however, another story. Let's just say that I'm still working on that.
