    For those in the Portland area, I'm helping out at a local public Linux workshop, what we geeks like to call an "installfest".
    There will be people there who will be able to answer questions, help install Linux on your computers, demonstrate its capabilities, etc.

    I am a Fedora Ambassador and will be representing Fedora, passing out DVDs/CDs, answering questions, etc. Other distributions represented will be Ubuntu, OpenSuSE, Mint, and PCLinuxOS.

    Saturday Oct. 25th 10am-4pm.

    I helped out w/ one of these one time. It was pretty informal, and was setup on a forum.. It was fun.

    Have a good time.

    What distribution are you trying to install? You can probably get specific help relating to that distribution on their forums.... Installing Linux to Dualboot, is really quite simple.
