Using the Helix GNOME installation program
go-gnome has finished downloading the Helix installation program, the Helix GNOME installation will be launched. In Figure 6, you see how this installation program looks when it first appears on screen.

First, read the instructions in this window, and then click the "Next" button to proceed. After that, the installation program asks you where to get the Helix GNOME packages. This is also shown in Figure 7.

If you haven't already downloaded Helix GNOME (and we assume you haven't), you should select the first option, "Helix Code Mirror Site," and then click "Next."
Now, the installation program asks about a possible HTTP proxy. A screen shot of this dialog is shown in Figure 8.
Figure 8. The installation will request information about your HTTP proxy.
If you don't know anything about an HTTP proxy, it's safe to select "Do not use an HTTP proxy." If you know that you need to use a proxy, select the other option, and enter the URL for your proxy in the text field. However, most people don't use an HTTP proxy. When you're done, click the "Next" button.
In the next screen, you need to select the mirror site from which you want to download the Helix GNOME packages. This is also shown in Figure 9.

Again, you should select the mirror that is geographically closest to you. Do that, and then click the "Next" button. Now, the package-select dialog comes up, as shown on the next page in Figure 10.
