This Install Fest is free and open to the public.
In particular, all members of NYLUG, LUNY!, AnyNIX, the Brooklyn Bunch, and all other Free Software Groups are welcome!
This Install Fest is made possible through the work and
kind generosity of the organizers and all volunteers and the
New School Computer Center.
Date: Wednesday, 28 July 1999.
Time: 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Location: New School Computer Center
68 Fifth Avenue, between 12th and 13th Streets,
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
Again, you need not bring any of these things, since they will be available onsite.
All free software welcome! LXNY does 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, we'll try a Scheme that boots on the metal, and we'd like to see the Hurd and some other free kernels running, too.
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.
The organizers of this Install Fest are Kamel Merarda of the New School and Alex Khalil.
