Since it didn't get posted on the list....

Installfests are always good. The first problem is, of course, where to
hold it. We would need a large space with lots and lots of outlets.
There almost certainly exists such a space somewhere at MSU, the
question is whether we can get it for any length of time.

As far as providing different distributions, I can provide (assuming we
schedule it sometime when I can be there):
- Debian
- Slackware
- Free-/Net-/OpenBSD
- Anything else people want that's available for download. I have cable
and a burner. :)

  From experience with TCLUG, it would be worth considering to have a
person who can be an "expert" for the day on each distribution to help
people install. It helps to make it look to the newbies like we know
what we're doing :)
