Mass installs are the best way to do it.
Get a whole load of your friends together, that know a little something, and hold this workshop, but do one better than just having some distros - install them!!!!
See if your uni will provide you with some CD-R's (tax writeoff in India?) - and burn a boatload of all different distros.
Limit yourself, there are too many out there to have them all.
Get together a "menu" of sorts, listing the differences between each of them, and offer people a choice of the distro they would like to have installed, based on their needs.......
I would use the following:
Yellow Dog (For Mac people)
Give them a copy of their chosen distro, and install it for them!!!!!
Be sure to explain, that should they decide to switch back, it is their responsibility to figure out how to do so, but, who in their right mind would?
Also, I would be sure to compile a small pamphlet, containing some info, and useful links for newbies......(lq.org should be at the top of this list!!!!)
