-We're done with the installation and initial configuration of the Slackware Linux. ;-) You can now prepare the system for reboot and, well, reboot. Before doing that, you might also consider looking at the //Appendix B//, where I explain how to prepare the SSH stuff, so that after rebooting, you can connect to the server with SSH right away. (Otherwise, you will have to log in over serial console to perform the other configuration tasks).+We're done with the installation and initial configuration of the Slackware Linux. ;-) You can now prepare the system for reboot and, well, reboot.

If you have more mounted disk partitions, you should umount them too: First, prepare the hard disk to safely survive the reboot phase.
