Event Description:
The next CLUG Installfest will be held on September 18th, at the University of 
Calgary - Room 202 in Scurfield Hall.
 Click here

see a map of the campus, with some highlights to help find your way there.
Bring your computer, and we'll help you get Linux installed on it. Bring your 
questions and we'll answer them as best we can.
- If you are bringing your computer, please bring everything needed to get the 
computer up and running in a useful manner. This includes a monitor, 
keyboard/mouse, power cables, network cables, etc. 
- It IS possible to resize a hard drive partition, but doing so always has a 
chance of not working and forcing a re-partition and reformat of the drive. 
Please backup all your data before the event, and be prepared to 
reformat/reinstall if necessary. 
- We will have CDs/DVDs available for the more common Linux Distributions. We 
will also have the capacity on hand to make more should we run out. 
- We have had hardware problems crop up many times in the past. Please check 
your hardware before attending, and try to allow for time to setup your 
equipment and potential problems that may take some time to resolve. 
- In some cases a system can be set up in less than an hour, where others may 
take all day. Please allocate enough time for your needs. 
- Space should not be a problem. The room is large enough to handle many many 
people and computers. 

Please feel free to post the Installfest Flyer

pertinent bulletin boards.

If you have any questions or concerns, please use the Executive Contact Page

Coordinator or the President.
