That sounds like a great idea, now, since we're all good at our own areas
with setup, why not - to get him set up - donate a weekend between us and
get the whole thing running, on the condition that the ILUG gets discounted
use or maybe a standing booking for [mini]F2F's etc. Support could be
organised as a seperate issue. But with a dozen or so of us working over a
day or two we could get about 50 machines up and running properly.
It could be used as a showcase for businesses and just imagine the publicity
we *could* generate if we wanted to ...

And if you can find them,
Maybe you can hire the ILUG
