How To Install Alpine on VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a Sun/Oracle virtualization product for x86 architecture. This document describes one way to install alpine to that platform.

Before You Start Title

Your readers might need to get ready before they can do the work. If so explain those prerequisites first. This section might alternatively contain background information readers need to know before they can make sense of your example or carry out your instructions.

Doing Something Title

Write the steps of how to do something in this section. If possible, show an example first, then tell your readers the steps. Break this procedure into separate procedures to avoid more than about 7-9 steps per procedure.

  1. Answer the following three questions, at least in your head.
    1. What do I explain how to do?
    2. How do I do that?
    3. What do HOWTO readers already know about doing that?
  2. Write up a good example. This ensures you can do it.
  3. Write up the steps to do it.
  4. Write the background info/prerequisites readers need.
  5. Write the summary.
  6. Clean up your work.
  7. Revise, revise, revise.
