Umm, does anyone have a time machine I can borrow? ;)  Or is this a few
years in the future - real advance notice (just trying to work out when the
4th is a Sunday ;) ).

Hehehe, just nit picking - thought u guys were supposed to proof read. ;)

You make a good case for attending an installfest.  I learnt Linux the hard
way - a mate and I decided to setup a small dialin server some 6 years ago,
and on the reccommendation of people in the know, we decided to use Linux.  

One day, he rocks up with a server (486! :) ) and a Linux CD and says "I
can't get this going, reckon you can"?  I got it installed in a couple of
hours, after a couple of false starts, and had a workable system in a few
weeks. :-)

Sounds like a good idea.  Wireless is going to be a growing part of the
Linux community.  And it might be the way some of us get to _see_ wireless
in action for a little while. :)
