The Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) is a SASE x-ray Free-Electron Laser (FEL) project presently under construction at SLAC. The injector section, from drive-laser and RF photocathode gun through the first bunch compressor chicane, was installed during the Fall of 2006. Initial system commissioning with an electron beam takes place in the Spring and Summer of 2007. The second phase of construction, including the second bunch compressor and the FEL undulator, will begin later, in the Fall of 2007. We report here on experience gained during the first phase of machine commissioning, including RF photocathode gun, linac booster section, energy spectrometers, S-band and X-band RF systems, the first bunch compressor stage, and the various beam diagnostics.
