There is a big difference between looking threw a window and and living in a open world. I don't like window I like open world open source , real world real freedom.
Welcome the to real open world. I love this community , i love freedom , i love linux.
I used to look threw the window of my home in my childhood.
I want to thank to every single person who ever worked for linux, open source or still working on it.

looking for lug in bangor area

I am new to using Linux, and am looking for a LUG in the Bangor area. Does anyone know of any???? I am taking a class at EMCC "Intro. to Linux" using an outdated RedHat 7.2 that the textbook came with. I successfully downloaded SuSE 9.2, Mandrake 10.0, and have a copy of MEPIS. I have fooled around with MEPIS a little bit and have a few questions.
1. I installed MEPIS before Windows XP and used the QPart for setting up the NTFS partition for XP but when I went to install XP it just kept going to the set-up screen and would just keep re-installing. Anyone know a little about this?
2. I also have Mandrake 10.0 that I was told that it would be ok to install with XP already installed. Does anyone experiences with Mandrake. I just don't want any screw ups with 80 gigs of data to lose.

Thanks,
Jean

Mandrake is good. It's partitioner during installation will resize your NTFS without loss of data(most likely). I started on Mandrake, but it's to Windowsy for me. Mandrake is a good place to start. I don't know about MEPIS or about LUG in this area

Yes it is and I will be there. It is at the Bangor public library down stairs. If you look to the right of the main entrance you will see a path going to the downstairs door. Go in that door go though the second doors take a left then another quick left down the hall and we meet in the room at the end of that hall.

There are no requirements. If you want to be a member it is $12.00 a year. You do not need to be a member to come though. The more warm bodies the better

Well, we ocassionally have drawings for books for members. Plus being a member allows you to vote when we have votes so you have some say on the direction of the group. Probably more but I can't think of it right now. Better to just show up and ask.

Just making sure...I can just show up? I don't need to sign up ahead of time? No need to become a memeber? Anything else?
