Background

Some weeks back IOE FOSS Community had conducted a FOSS awareness presentation in Brihaspati Vidya Sadan, Naxal. But it turned out that the Academic coordinator of the school Mr. Pravin Joshi is a computer whiz himself and they already had linux running (through LTSP; distro - edubuntu to be specific) in their lab. He told us that after the presentation the students were really interested on havin linux installed on their machine. But the problem was nobody actually suceeded in installation..

Another development is that the school wants to switch all the machines in their computer lab to linux. And they want FOSS Nepal's assistance on this. Now since the students are also havin trouble in linux installation and we at FOSS Nepal have all been wantin to do this - install-fest!! It'll be beneficial to all - we'll have the install fest, the students will learn the installation process n eventually the lab will be in linux too..
