This Installation Handbook is the full, official documentation for installing Adélie Linux 1.0 on a supported computer, including special architecture-specific notes and a bootstrap installation from another distribution. It was initially drafted with a section outline in 2015, before the distribution itself was even created. It is hoped by the author that you find this handbook easy to understand and read.

Many contributed to the final version of the Handbook. This includes [[sroracle]] and smaeul on the Adélie IRC channel, whom tested the instructions on their machines and reported omissions and corrections.

Please feel free to contact me or the Adélie Linux community if you have any suggestions on how to make this handbook better. We'd love to hear from you, and we hope you enjoy using our distribution.
