Installing MineOS involves numerous steps. These steps do not require that you have partitions or filesystems applied, as that is part of the setup process.

These steps cover both the x86 and x64 versions.

'setup' process

Boot the cd with 'crux' or with the framebuffer 'fb1024'
Login as 'root' and run the 'setup' script
Hit 'yes' to the welcome message
Type in your hard drive's boot designation
If you need to partition, select 'yes'
Create partitions and 'write' to the MBR
Type in your bootable partition's drive designation
Hit 'yes' to format the partition as reiserfs
Type in your swap partition's drive designation
Confirm the installation
Wait for files to finish copying
Hit 'ok' to acknowledge the copy success
Set the password for new user 'mc'
Create the SSL certificate and ramdisk, then reboot

Logging in for the first time

If all went well, it should boot into Linux and look like this:

Log in as 'root' and set the password

Next Steps

From here on, I encourage all users to connect to their Linux machines via PuTTY, which has countless advantages and is the industry standard way to connect to Linux machines remotely (even if you're working on the same machine).

See the PuTTY page for instructions on how to download, use, and improve your Linux experience with a terminal window instead of interacting with the machine directly.

As stated at the end of the setup process, you should use the user 'mc' for all minecraft-related management, including using the Web-ui, downloading the server jars and handling backups/archives.
