Bob Edwards just volunteered to do a virgin install of linux onto an
unopened X Box (he bought it yesterday, he will open the packaging and
install linux onto it in front of everyone.

Is anyone keen to see this? (Bob will be doing it anyway, however he will do
it at CLUG if people want to see it happen)

He also offered anyone who wants to bring their X Box along to have linux
installed he can do them also.

	See You
