Good suggestion, tico!
This can be easily misunderstood, especially if you are coming from a ubuntu type os, as with say Mint, after install, and after entering password it gives a small welcome screen that asks if you want to give user root privileges, and it says in parenthesis, that normally you do not want to do this, that it is best to leave it unchecked (I'm not certain of the exact wording), but when I first tried it out, my husband told me, "just say, "no", and he said, he wondered why Mint even asked this. With Pardus, I have found the opposite to be true, that you should say yes to administrative privileges for user. I'm not sure of the difference, but maybe it has something to do with one os using su and the other os using sudo. I have done a reinstall when I first installed Pardus and didn't give user administrative privileges. Waf's link is great in showing how to install Pardus, but if you don't have internet access while trying to install an operating system, well, you can't get to it to read it.
