Hi all, updates:

1) Phil dropped off a CD drive, we can now install Ubuntu, thanks Phil. I installed it on 1 machine and it was sloooow.  I've ordered some 256mb Ram sticks so that these PCs will function.

2) I've moved a LAN cable so that it's in "our" room.  Can some one provide a crimping tool (to put a RJ45 connector) or a  punch tool to connect to a jack?

3) Still looking for power strips and LAN cables!

We've arranged the space at Cleveland Park library.... the furniture is arranged, Phil has dropped off some Compaq ipaq computers... here's what we still need to do:

1) Figure out a way to install Ubuntu on the computers - I was not able to boot from USB (the bios allows it, but I've not been able to do it), the wubi-installer also didn't work (It wouldn't move past looking for a DC drive, or couldn't find the iso file on the HD).

Perhaps we can install from an external USB CD drive, does anyone have one lying around?

2) I need some help with wiring - we need to move a LAN cable from 1 room to another, this requires us to drill a small hole in a wall (suggested by the manager). I have a drill, does any one have a  6 to 8 inch masonry drill bit? and the tool to add the RJ45 connector to the LAN cable?

3) I have a 4 port router, some LAN cables and power strips would be appreciated.

Thanks &  regards
