Brooklyn, NY 11201
which is near the Brooklyn end of the Brooklyn Bridge, and easy to get to by both subway and car.
We shall install free OSes on their hardware and PASA's hardware.
LXNY thanks PASA for sponsoring this meeting.
We will also hold a rally for theBazaar , which is the large Free Software trade show coming to the Javits Convention Center 13-15 March 1999.
Steve Blood will explain what theBazaar is and how you can help.
Volunteers are needed today.
Please send an email to sblood@theBazaar.org if you'd like to volunteer before the meeting.

Good pizza is available at several shops near the Install Fest site.
If on the day of the Install Fest you become lost please call 718-834-9467.
All free software welcome! LXNY does not discriminate among free kernels based upon the first letter of their names. We shall install as many free systems on as many machines and on as many different kinds of machines as possible. We shall install both Linux kerneled and free *BSD kerneled systems, and we'd like to see the Hurd and some other free kernels running, too.
All experienced installers are invited to come and help.
All students of economics, of the history of engineering, and of the art of propaganda are invited.
The last Install Fest of LXNY took place 9 April 1998. Since that time the superiority of free OSes for many purposes has become a commonplace in the mass media. Reporters who doubt the superiority of free OSes for the casual home user are especially welcome at this Install Fest.
If you are an experienced installer please send email to email@example.com, so we may make arrangements to efficiently serve the cause. Please put the string "Me too!" in the subject line.
