 Getting Started
 
+    Getting started with Continuum's default configuration is very easy.
+
+    After unpacking the binary distribution, run the following command from the <<<bin>>>
directory:
+
+====
+continuum console
+====
+
+    Continuum will be started from the command line and run until quit with Ctrl-C. For more
instructions on installing
+    Continuum as a service or under an existing application server, refer to the {{{./installation/index.apt}
+    Installation Guides}}.
+
     When you start Continuum for the first time (without an existing database), the first
thing you will
-    do is create the admin account and perform the {{{./administrator_guides/configuration.html}General
Configuration}}.
+    do is create the administrator account and perform the {{{./administrator_guides/configuration.html}General
+    Configuration}}.

-    After the admin account has been created, you can log as the admin user. The next thing
you will see is the <<General Configuration>>
-    page.
+    After the administrator account has been created, you can log as the <<<admin>>>
user with the password you selected.
+    The next thing you will see is the <<General Configuration>> page.

-    You may also create more users, {{{./user_guides/managing_project/addProject.html}add
projects}}, etc.

+    The defaults are usually sufficient, so you can save the configuration. You may later
make changes to this page if
+    you are enabling Distributed Builds, for example.
+
+Next Steps
+
+    Once the server is running, you will likely want to do the following:
+
+    * Create more users via the <<Users>> menu item, so that you no longer need
to use the administrator account for
+      daily tasks.
+
+    * {{{./user_guides/managing_project/addProject.html}Add Projects}} to build
+
+    * Configure Continuum to work with distributed builds if you intend to have multiple
build slave machines
+
+    * Configure installed software packages and environment variables for project templates
