Bloodhound Basics - Boot Camp (CBT/Basic Training on the Bloodhound)


So you've ordered a Bloodhound, or even received one....now what..?  Well, you've come
to the right place.  Bloodhound Boot Camp is a master description with comprehensive article
links relating to the Bloodhound, related software, and initial setup instructions.  It strives to
give the user an overall "big picture" of the Bloodhound and its components, and their use, and
its primary goal is to get a new user started with the Bloodhound. 

NOTE:  It is recommended for new users of the Bloodhound that you follow the Boot Camp
           outline in the order it is presented here.

That said, and without further adieu, here is the Bloodhound Boot Camp...


PREREQUISITES:

1)  You need access to this website - Yes, this sounds a little strange, but if you plan to
     distribute these instructions, make sure those to whom you are going to distribute these
     tutorials have appropriate access.

2)  You do *not* need to have a Bloodhound on-hand for this boot camp.  It is intended for
     new users who may have ordered, but not yet received, a Bloodhound.


BLOODHOUND BOOT CAMP:
Instead of a large article singling out each of the components of the Bloodhound, what we
have done is to provide links, in order, to the artlces that after reading them and going through
their tutorials/videos, you will have a greater overall unsterstanding of the Bloodhound.  Once
you have been through it once, re-orienting yourself involves only going to one section of the
Bloodhound's Knowledge Base rather than working through an entire training scenario.  That
said, here are the articles, in order that define the "Bloodhound Boot Camp":
