I am hosting a Linux install fail party where you bring the computers that can't run Linux and spend countless hours trying and failing to do so.

My favorite one so far is a DELL 4500S.  It can run FreeBSD perfectly but blows up in so many interesting and different ways while trying to install Linux depending on the boot options
you give it.  Naturally the default options fail too.

Please let me know if you are interested in bringing your guaranteed-to-fail-to-install-Linux hardware and camcorders, etc. to bring the party to the world.
