I am happy to announce the release of the "Access Grid Installation Guide for Scientific Linux 6" which can be found at http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2554.

This document has undergone substantial redevelopment from previous "Fedora" install guides.

This document contains many sections, these include:

 *   Introduction<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2575>
 *   Why Scientific Linux?<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2576>
 *   Single and Multi-Node Access Grids Notes<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2573>
 *   Which windows manager to choose?<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2574>
 *   Installation of Scientific Linux 6.x<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2555>
 *   Updating to latest Software and Patches<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2556>
 *   Getting the Display to Work (Nvidia Video Cards)<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2557>
 *   Security<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2565>
 *   Configure Networking<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2577>
 *   Installation of the Access Grid Software<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2559>
 *   Configuring AG Service Managers (Multi-Node Configuration Only)<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2578>
 *   Getting the Sound Working<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2579>
 *   Setup For Access Grid Toolkit 3.x<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2580>
 *   Installing and using GRAV<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2590>
 *   Configuring a Unicast Bridge<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2582>
 *   Installing Other Useful Software<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2581>
 *   Installing Multicast Beacon (DBeacon)<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2583>
 *   Handy Tips and Tricks<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2585>
 *   Troubleshooting Tips<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2584>
 *   Scheduling useful tasks<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2586>
 *   Setting up an AG Development Environment<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2588>
 *   Installation drivers for the black magic cards<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2589>
 *   Conclusion<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2587>

Some of the new content includes information on GRAV and the installation of the "Black Magic" drivers.

There are a few little tweaks and additional content that will be made soon, including information on "Adding and configuring HD Video Services" and therefore I wanted to note this document is a "living" document with updates occurring on a regular basis.

I would welcome any feedback (even grammar) and any improvements or additional content you would like to see.
There are many people who have helped to make this document possible (see Conclusion<http://www.accessgrid.org/node/2587> for list of thanks), but I would like to especially thank Doug Kosovic for all his help.
