Following up on last nights wildly successful first Free Software 
Institute Meeting, the Chair of the Institute, and myself, wish to
introduce the first class of our cradle to grave Linux/Free Software 
program of NYLXS (see http://www.nylxs.com).

Paul will followup on the complete program, but I would like to 
announce the first class.  This is a very exciting begining.

The first class is called Intoduction to Linux.  The cost is $200
plus you can purchase a computer through our network of 
hardware vendors to participate in the class.  This class goes 
through the installation process of Linux on standard hardware 
and ONLY hardware which we order through our vendor will 
be allowed to be used in the classroom.  This prevents us from 
turning into installfest maddness.

People who spring for the machine (for less than $500) will
beable to use it in further classes as we learn to build a powerful 
system.

The class will be 5 classes in 5 weeks from 
Monday Febuary 4th until March 4th.  All students
MUST pay in advanced.

The time of the class will be 7PM - 10:30PM  We might push later is
required.  We will also meet on line for instruction on an agreed upon
weeksly time to fill out about 6 hours a weeks instruction.

We will hold class at
Rosenswieg and Maffia at 845 3rd Avenue in Midtown Manhattan


A maximum of 20 students can be accomedated.
 
Checks are made payable to NYLXS.

Final exams of this class is the installation of a system with
basic setup.
