This is the project page for an introductory session taking place Monday, Feb 22nd from 7 PM - 9 PM at the UC Berkeley University Village residential computer lab located at 1101 Jackson St, Albany, CA. The goal is to help the international family residents install and use Linux on their home computers. A follow up session will be held Monday, March 1st.

We will give a presentation for 30-45 minutes followed by an installfest where residents are invited to bring their laptops and install Linux with the assistance of user group volunteers from the Berkeley Linux User's Group, BerkeleyLUG.
