     4= __Getting Started__ =
     6== Login to GeniDesktop ==
     8Follow instructions on [wiki:GeniDesktop/Manual/gettingStarted/GENI_Desktop_login#TologintotheGENIDesktop this] page to get logged in.
     12== Create a Slice ==
     14Follow  instructions on [wiki:GeniDesktop/Manual/gettingStarted/Create_slice#CreateaSlice this] page to see how to perform this step.
     16You can also use an existing slice that does not have resources already too.
     20== Allocate Resources using JACKS in the GENI Desktop ==
     22Once you have created the slice successfully , you should will be redirected to page that talks with allocating resources. If you plan to use an existing slice with no resources in it, then just click on the slicename in the list of slices you see after you logged in.
     24To see how to do this in the GENIDesktop, please see [wiki:GeniDesktop/Manual/gettingStarted/Create_sliver_jacks#CreatingaSliversusingJACKSintheGeniDesktop this page ]
     26'''NOTE''': If you already have a slice with resources allocated (using Omni or Jacks in the GENI Portal) already, you can still use that slice by following the instructions from [wiki:GeniDesktop/Manual/gettingStarted/Create_sliver_jacks_portal this page].
     30== Waiting for slice and resources to become ready ==
     31  Once you allocate your resources, you are redirected to your slice specific GENIDesktop page. On this page you can view your resources being allocated indicated by the colored status of the nodes where
     33 - Yellow mean OS Loading/booting
     34 - Red means Failed
     35 - Green mean Ready
     37Once all of the nodes are in a  READY State you will notice the status window displaying a status of '''Initializing''' followed by '''Instrumentizing'''. To understand what these mean and preview of what these look like go to [wiki:GeniDesktop/Manual/gettingStarted/init#Waitingforslicetobecomeready this page] . Once the instrumentizing phase is complete you can proceed to the [ Execute] phase of this tutorial.
