0. Introduction
===============

WebYaST is a web-based remote console plugging into a stateless interface
exposed by an SLE-based appliance and providing a set of configuration modules
appropriate to enable minimal user control of the appliance "black box"
environment.

1. Installation
===============

WebYaST is not "installable" per se. It is a component available for building
of appliances. To build appliances using webYaST, set up the repository in
your SUSE Studio instance.
