Boot

There are two ways to boot and use NST. A live boot, allows you to try out NST or use it for temporary rescue and analysis situations. A live boot has several limitations, but allows you to run NST without modifying your system. If you find NST to be useful, you will want to perform a full hard disk installation. Once installed to a hard disk, the NST will work like a typical Linux system - except that you will have a plethora of tools available to you through the comfort of your web browser.

From this point, you should be able to proceed with the NST 20 Hard Disk Installation.
