This procedure assumes that you will be using the graphical mode to install Forms Services Platform. You can also install Forms Services Platform in console mode. The console mode install procedure is almost identical to the graphical mode install except that you use the keyboard instead of the mouse to enter data and to navigate through the screens. To start the installer in console mode, enter ./LFServer_800_Solaris.bin -i console
