    Hi.

    I am a 2 days old Mac user :eek:
    My first program that I need to install needs text-mode (it cannot be installed if the graphic interface is running). At least this is what its documentation says.

    My question is how to switch to text mode to run the SU command?

    Thanks.

    Finder/applications/utilities

    Both Console and Terminal are in there.
