Hi everyone,

The Waikato Linux Users Group are proud to announce their second annual
Linux installfest, to be held at the Crawshaw School Hall on Crawshaw Drive,
Hamilton, from 10am on Saturday 7th May.

Registration for the installfest is now open on the WLUG website at
http://www.wlug.org.nz/InstallFest. There is no charge to attend.

"Our last installfest was a great success and an educational experience for
the WLUG, as well as the participants" says group president Greig McGill.
"We look forward to applying lessons learned last year, and making this one
as good as it can be." Over 50 people attended the 2004 event, and this year
WLUG intend to streamline the installations in order to run more training.

For people who are interested in Free Software, but not yet ready to take
the leap into running Linux, the WLUG will also have demonstrations of free
software for Microsoft Windows, such as the tremendously popular Firefox web
browser and OpenOffice.org office software.

How you can help
----------------

If you are interested in helping with the installfest organization, check
out the http://www.wlug.org.nz/InstallFestToDo page, and email me if there
is anything there you'd like to have a go at.

If you want to sign up to either attend or help on the day, please register
on the registration page.  (The page will be updated later tonight; if you
go earlier, please make it clear if you're a helper or a new installation).

Thanks
Craig
