"Gnumed is developed by doctors and programmers from around the
globe and is gaining plenty of traction. Gnumed is broken into a
client and a backend server and is released for both the Linux
platform and the Windows platform. In order to use Gnumed you do
have to have the Server up and running. You can, however, demo
Gnumed by connecting to one of the public demo databases.
"For the purposes of this introductory article, we will connect
to the public demo. In a later article I will outline setting up
the backend server for Gnumed.
"Fortunately the Gnumed client will be found in your
distribution repositories. So to install the software you will only
have to follow these steps:
1. Open the Add/Remove Software utility.
2. Search for "gnumed" (no quotes).
3. Select the results for installation.
4. Click Apply to install."
