-			To install Jetspeed-2 with the installer, run depending on which installer you've downloaded:
+			To run the standard (minimal) installer:
+			</p>
-java -jar Jetspeed2.0-MultiDB-install.jar
-java -jar Jetspeed2.0-derby-install.jar
+java -jar jetspeed-2.1-installer.jar
+            </source>

+To run the Jetspeed Demo installer:

+            <source>
+java -jar jetspeed-2.1-demo-installer.jar
-			</p>	
-			<p>
-			For the Multi-DB installer you will need to supply:
+			<p>	
+			To run the installer interactively, pass in the <b><i>text</i></b>
+			</p>
+			<source>
+java -jar jetspeed-2.1-installer.jar text	
+            </source>
+		    </subsection>
+		    <subsection name="Database Selection">
+		    <p>
+			The installer will ask you to choose a database for storing the Jetspeed database. We
provide a default Derby database for demo systems.
+			The Derby database runs in embedded mode inside the Jetspeed/Tomcat JVM. All other databases
require additional configuration.
+			If you selected Derby, you can go with the default parameters provided. For all other
databases you must first create an area to hold the Jetspeed tables.
+			For some databases this <i>area</i> is called a <i>catalog</i>,
others call it a <i>schema</i>, while others call it a <i>database</i>.
Consult your
+			database documentation for details on how to create a catalog or schema to hold the Jetspeed
tables. Additionally, you may need to create a database user
+			to access the Jetspeed tables. Often is required to grant access to the schemas (catalogs)
for the given user.
+			</p>
+			<p>Jetspeed supported database list:
+			<ul>
+			<li>DB2</li>
+			<li>Derby (default)</li>
+			<li>MS SQL</li>
+			<li>My SQL</li>
+			<li>PostgreSQL</li>
+			<li>Oracle (9i or higher)</li>
+			<li>SapDB</li>
+			<li>Manual database setup </li>
+			</ul>
+			</p>
+			<p>If you choose the manual database setup, then the database scripts will not be
run. You can configure the database at a later time.
+			All database scripts are provided in the installation under the <i>database</i>
directory. For your specific database, look under the corresponding directory name.
+			During installation, you will be prompted for the following fields after chosing your
database types:
-			<li>A Database type. Valid values [derby, mssql, mysql, oracle, hsql, postgres,
 			<li>A username</li>
 			<li>A password</li>
 			<li>A JDBC connection string</li>
 			<li>A JDBC driver name</li>
-			<li>The location of a valid JDBC driver.  The installer will copy this to the installed
-			</ul>
-            With the exception of Derby, you will need to create an empty database schema
-            your particular database to store the Jetspeed tables. With the exception of
Derby, you can not run the 
-		    installer twice against the same database schema. You have to manually drop the tables
yourself before 
-            running the installer a second time.				
-			</p>
-			</subsection>
+			<li>The location of a valid JDBC driver.  The installer will copy the driver to
the installed location in Tomcat.</li>
+			</ul>
+			Note that only the Derby database has exact values for the JDBC connection string and
location of the JDBC driver.
+			The connections strings are only partially completed in the well-known format of the particular
+			Please take care to complete the values in your connection string for your database. The
driver name should be the right
+			driver class for your database at the time of the making of this installation. Please
ensure that a newer driver is not required. 
+			Note that the location of the JDBC driver must be selected. We have not provided the file
system path to the jar file.
+			You may want to check and see if newer versions of the driver are available.
+			</p>
+			<p>
+			Once you have entered all of your parameters, the installer we test the database connection
before proceeding.
+			The installer will not continue until it gets a valid connection. Once the installer verifies
the database connection,
+			you are ready to proceed with installation process. Please take note of the location where
you are installing on your file system.

- 			</p>
+			<p>
+All preconfigured users have the same password as username (for example the <i>admin</i>
user has the password <i>admin</i>)
+If you installed with the Minimal installer, two test accounts are available:

+			<source>
+admin 	  -- System administrator, super user
+devmgr 	  -- Delegated security manager, can manage users with the "dev" (developer) role

+If you installed with the Full Demo installer, several test accounts are available:		   
+ 			</p>
+ 			<source>
+admin 	  -- System administrator, super user
+manager   -  Has system administration rights, but not super user
+user 	  -- A sample user demonstrating with with a home page and advanced profiled menus

+			<p>
+The Jetspeed Desktop is a client-side JSR-168 aggregation engine.
+To accesss the Desktop, navigate your browser to <a href='http://localhost:8080/jetspeed/desktop'>http://localhost:8080/jetspeed/desktop</a>
+When switching between the /desktop and the /portal URLs, logout to start a new session.

+			</subsection>
+			<subsection name="Changing the Database">
+			<p>
+			After running the installation, you can manually reinitialize the database or even switch
to another database.
+			To do so, we provide an Ant script found under the <i>database</i> directory
of your installed Jetspeed portal.
+			The database configuration is defined in the <i>database.properties</i> file.
To reinitialize or change the database,
+			go to the database directory and edit the database.properties file, save it, and then
run <b><i>ant</i></b>.
+			</p>
+			<p>Here is a sample database configuration file:
+			</p>
+			<source>
+; Jetspeed Enterprise Portal 2.1 Database setup configuration
+; db.type supported values: db2, derby, mssql, mysql, oracle, postgres, sapdb
+: for db.type other than derby, the properties below need to be specified
