Manhatten Install Fest is April 19

Author: JT Smith

The GNUbies and LXNY, with NYLUG in support, are throwing a big
Install Fest on Thursday, 19 April, 2001, on the Island of Manhattan. This Install Fest is free and open to all.

This Install Fest is made possible through the work and kind generosity
of
the organizers and all the volunteers. We especially thank Matt
Lederman
and XADAX.

All free software welcome! We do not discriminate among free kernels
based
upon the first letter of their names. We shall install as many free
systems on as many machines and on as many different kinds of machines
as
possible. We shall install both Linux kerneled and free *BSD kerneled
systems. Any person who installs or helps install the Hurd or Squeak
or
any Lisp OS or any ML OS will be treated to gin.

All experienced installers are invited to come and help. All students of economics, of the history of engineering, and of the
art
of propaganda are invited.

Details:

Date: Thursday, 19 April, 2001.

Time: 4:00 pm to midnight.
Late comers are just as welcome as those who arrive at 4:00 pm.

Location: XADAX
161 W. 22nd Street, near Seventh Avenue
on the Second Floor
above The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre
on the Island of Manhattan.

Hardware: Bring the boxes on which you wish to run a Free OS.
Though it is safest to bring your monitor, keyboard, and
mouse,
you need not. We will have such available onsite.
Internet connections via ethernet will be provided.
Telephone lines will be provided, so we can help with PPP.

Software: Bring whatever distribution CDs, boot and rescue disks, boot
managers, tiny distributions, manuals, and anything else you
want. Again, you need not bring any of these things, since
they will be available onsite.
