The slideshow uses Windows XP and Mozilla Firefox to deomonstrate how to install the Second Life program. If you're using a different browser or operating system, your set-up may be a little different. However, the basic process is the same.

Note: Make sure to check the minimum system requirements on the Second Life Web site. If your computer does not meet these requirements, Second Life will not run properly for you.
