Re: Interest in SIG?

I've been thinking about that some more... And I don't think 'intro to
samba' would be a good thing for newbie night. Newbie night has to be
dedicated to Linux Newbies. Not Administrator newbies. Key topics, after
Newbie Night is established could do something with samba, but using samba
just isn't a newbie topic. We have a great percentage of people who can't
even get linux installed. Those are the people we need to gear newbie
night for. Samba intro would be better for a real LUG meeting... Keep in
mind, I'm keeping this to 'newbie night' a place where no question is too
silly, and we don't stop until everyone understands fully...
