     Presentation by Kyle Rankin: "Introduction to Knoppix"

     Knoppix is a complete Linux distribution that runs directly from a
     bootable CD-ROM. While Knoppix has a wide variety of uses, most
     people typically are only familiar with one or two of them. In this
     talk Kyle will introduce Knoppix and cover all the different uses
     for the project including Linux installation, system administration,
     system rescue, remastering Knoppix itself and other uses.

     Kyle is a systems administrator for The Green Sheet, Inc., the
     current president of the North Bay Linux Users' Group (NBLUG), and
     the author of Knoppix Hacks. Kyle has been using Linux in one form
     or another since early 1998. In his free time he does pretty much
     the same thing he does at work--work with Linux.

     Members' Minutes

     Members will have an opportunity to take a few minutes to...

         * Describe their latest Linux discovery
         * Ask questions and get help from other members
         * Discuss Linux projects

     You can just stand up and talk, or give a short demo or presentation.
     If you need audio/visual support for your Members' Minute, please
     contact me in advance to arrange for your needs.

     We have a limited number of books courtesy of Prentice-Hall to give
     away as an added inducement to participate in this portion of the
     meeting.  :-)


     Although it is NOT required, we like to have an idea of how many
     people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp at penlug.org if you
     are planning to attend.
