We're trying to donate 500 Ubuntu computers to SF Bay Area schools this
SATURDAY... and we need your help! 

Can you lend a hand by volunteering to install Ubuntu?  Signup to
volunteer at one of the four locations (San Francisco, San Mateo, Berkeley
or Novato) here: 


Installfest Details
Untangle and the ACCRC refurbishing hundreds of older/discarded computers
that the ACCRC has collected with Ubuntu and donating them to Northern
California schools.  We need support from the F/OSS community to help with
the installs.  We have automated as much of the install as possible so
anyone can help regardless of their experience level. Of course we'll get
our share of error messages so we need gurus also!  ...And the Mozilla
Foundation is bringing pizza & schwag to each location!  Thanks Mozilla!

Not in the Bay Area the but still want to help????   
Help get the word out by blogging about it, Digg it or Slashdot it: 



Why the event is cool: 
  -Helps spread F/OSS (Ubuntu, Firefox, OpenOffice & more) 

  -Helps bridges the Digital Divide with underprivileged users 

  -Keeps toxic computer equipment out of landfills (Aprox 25,000 pounds) 

  -Is a cool community effort 

Thanks in advance for your help!
