It also prepares sugar (Soas) to a virgin state ready for the next user:

*To clear Sugar of these keys and the name and color entries*, enter the 
command "(|rm ~ rf /.sugar|)" in the Terminal activity. Then shutdown 
sugar "(|su shutdown -h now| )" . This will clear all Learner 
information and let you start with a fresh install. Skipping this will 
result in collisions in the Neighborhood view of the Jabber network. 
Verify the presence of the *.sugar* directory by entering"(|ls -a| )"in 


If this is too advanced, for the tutorial, It can be removed.

The network collisions problem is real. some people use dd to copy a usb 
and will have many problems if multiple identical copies are used.
