The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, December 11.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Using Kickstart to Install Red Hat Linux Systems

   According to Red Hat, ``Many system administrators would prefer to use
   an automated installation method to install Red Hat Linux on their
   machines. To answer this need, Red Hat created the kickstart
   installation method. Using kickstart, a system administrator can
   create a single file containing the answers to all the questions that
   would normally be asked during a typical Red Hat Linux installation.''
   ``Kickstart files can be kept on single server system, and read by
   individual computers during the installation. This installation method
   can support the use of a single kickstart file to install Red Hat
   Linux on multiple machines, making it ideal for network and system

   This month, John Schulz, from Pollard Banknote Ltd., will present a
   quick overview of Kickstart and demo the install process.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   New Location: Once again this month, and from now on, the meeting will
   be at the IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave. (between Edmonton and
   Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to sign in at the reception
   desk, and then wait for someone to take you (in groups) to the meeting

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, or in a lot
   across Ellice from IBM, for $1.00 for the evening. Indoor parking is
   also available nearby, at Portage Place, for $2.00 for the evening.

Also note that MUUG maintains two mailing lists, called "muug-announce"
and "roundtable".  If you're not already on these lists, I encourage you
to subscribe now:


The "muug-announce" list is used for monthly meeting announcements (such
as this one) as well as other important announcements of interest to MUUG

The "rountable" list is meant to be a forum for follow-ups to topics
discussed at the meetings, or for round-table-style discussion on other
topics that come up between meetings.  Of course, for this to be effective,
we need to reach a certain critical mass.  So, please subscribe, and stay
