Greetings Linux Fans
	This coming Saturday, November 10 2001, the Western Pennsylvania Linux
	Users Group will be hosting an installfest.  It will be located in
	Carnegie Mellon University's Newel-Simon Hall, room 1507.  The
	installfest will run from 10am-5pm.

	All are encouraged to come and enjoy the spectacle that is linux. (I'M
	Feel free to bring your computer and get help installing
	Linux on it.  If you have a specific distribution in mind that you
	would like installed, you can email jo2y at midnightlinux.com and ask him
	to either burn you a copy of that distribution for a fee of $2 and
	keep the cd, or ask him to make sure that a specific distribution is
	available for you to use, but not keep.

	Here are some things you can do to prepare for the glorius

	* Bring your own power strip
	* Bring cat5 or come early (around 10:00) and learn how to crimp network 
cable  w/ jo2y 
	* Label everything you bring with your name
	* Backup your system
	* If you run Windows, defragment your hard drive
	* Come prepared with some basic knowledge of your system:
		Hard drive space
		network card type
		video card type
		sound card type
	* $5 dollars for lunch plus any drink money you may want (Soda is $1 
in the vending machines)

	Maps and directions can be found on the meetings page on wplug's

	This is going to be VERY fun :) 

Hope to see you there
