How to install and use Freenet. First step in using freenet, 1.)Download and run freenet-webinstall.exe 2.) Go through the default install, dont change or edit anything 3.)When its finished installing it, run it, when its running you'll see its icon enter your system tray. If it doesnt run automatically, click the grey / blue rabbit icon. 4.) Now the icon should be in your system tray on the right side, you know, next to your dialup connection icon, your ICQ/AIM, etc. 5.)Open your browser, if you use IE open it, if you use Mozilla open that. 6.)Double click your rabbit icon in the system tray, or you can right click and select "Open Gateway" 7.)Enter the Freenet gateway and surf it as you would the WWW. Freenet replaces the WWW, its not a file sharing application, you surf Freenet in the same way you found your way to this site, you point and click through the links on the gateway. IF you need more help theres a help link on the gateway page.
