In the trenches with a Linux installation

Bloomington High School North, a few miles down the road from here, is installing 279 Ubuntu Linux workstations as part of the Indiana ACCESS program. Simon Ruiz is in charge of the deployment, and he’s got a very detailed blog going on here describing all the ins and outs. Very interesting from a technical standpoint and from the viewpoint of getting all this technology ready to use in a high school setting. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to do a major installation of Linux, that blog appears to be the place to go.
