  • Installing Linux
    There are several ways to install Linux. There are also several flavors (distributions) of Linux from which to choose. The most common method if installation is by CD-ROM. You can also install over a network via ftp, nfs or even from a local hard drive. Most distributions will provide a boot disk and CD-ROM. A full Red Hat 6.0 install will take about 20 minutes and will use just over 1 gig of hard drive space. You don't have to install everything though. A working Linux installation can use as little as 100 -200 mb of disk space. If this is you first Linux box, I would allow for experimentation and a few re-installs. Give yourself a break and don't try to get it all right the first time. When your new install is so perfect that you REALLY don't want to do it again, then you'll know you accomplished something. ;-)

  • Linux in the Classroom/ Schools
    The Linux in the Classroom (LITC) has been an idea of mine ever since I heard about Linux many years ago. Recently with all the news about commercial support towards Linux I feel it is necessary to start this organization. The goal of LITC is to promote the use of Linux in schools. This includes workstations, not just servers. Linux can be useful from the the server room to the corner of every classroom. LITC plans on accomplishing this through many different means: Installfest (an Installfest is where anyone can come to learn how to install and use Linux) will be planned and held throughout the United States and World, via voluntary efforts. Packets will be available for schools to send for. Each packet will include a CD with Linux on it, installation instructions, and information on Linux's use in schools. There are plans to have seminars, for teachers and interested public, about Linux and schools. In addition, LITC will use any means necessary to get our message across
