You will also be given a choice of what type of software will be displayed. By default all top level software is displayed. Once you have specified the source, a window similar to the one
shown on the slide appears on your screen. You can skip being prompted for the source by
specifying it on the swinstall command:
# swinstall -s /dev/rmt/0m # from a local tape depot
# swinstall -s /var/spool/sw # from a local directory depot
# swinstall -s /cdrom # from a CD mounted on /cdrom
# swinstall -s depothost:/mnt/mydepot # from a network depot

Until you define "any software", all you'll
get from non-psychics is guesswork.
As usual, output from "uname -a" might be
more interesting than "HP-UX".

For some software you can use swinstall. However, not all software is set up so that it can be installed that way. The best way is to read the manuals for the software.
