Here is another who already has Linux installed and wants configuration
help. This seems to be software specific; others need help setting up
hardware. I'm going to tell him software help is low priority, but to
come at 1pm and see if someone is available. I'll also point him to
Has there been a LUGOD IF policy along these lines in the past? Is this
a good idea? Generally, I don't think installfests should be a place
for people to come for software help; IFs are meant to help people
install Linux on their specific hardware.
Do let me know if I'm way off base here.
