Maybe there could be an open session starting before the regular meeting for
people with linux issues, a few experienced people could be there early to
answer questions, or help with install /upgrades. If the newbie could give
some advanced notice it would make it easier to have what ever might be
needed available (CD, cables, adapters...).
This time could also be used by the presenter to get everything setup.
