Installing Mint so that a new user can setup

I am selling a laptop to someone in my area and I'm going to wipe the HDD first. I am installing Linux Mint, but I'd like to have it setup to where the new user can enter their information on their own. Is there a way to do this relatively easily? I am not against using the command line if necessary.

    What you are after is what is called an "OEM Disk". Check out the Mint download page for OEM installs:

    http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php
  2. Is there a reason they can't just add themselves as a user? It's simple to do and you can default to that user on startup or select it if you prefer to not use the auto launch user option.

    I didn't even notice that Mint had OEM installs. That's just what I was looking for.

    I don't know the person I'm selling it to, so it would be better to just use an OEM install and let the user enter all the information on their own.
  4. It's funny because I hadn't paid much attention to the OEM downloads until you posted this. Apparently I had it logged somewhere in the back of my head. I thought to myself: Didn't I see an OEM download on the Mint pages? Sure enough!
