Dual-booting – do I need it or not?
Presentation by: Ron Fox
If you have toyed with the idea of installing and using a Free/Open Source Operating System like Linux or FreeBSD but have not gotten around to it because it seems complex or you do not have or want to maintain another computer, dual-booting may be the answer for you. This presentation will explain when dual-booting might make sense and will demonstrate the steps involved in putting a Free OS (like Linux) on the same computer as an existing non-free OS (like MS Windows) without compromising the existing OS. You may be amazed at how easy it is and find that you enjoy having Freedom be "just a restart away".
Ron is a long-time user and advocate of Open Source software and has been using GNU/Linux since 1994 at home and at work. He is a Senior Software Engineer with Diagnostic Laboratory Services, Inc

What is OPEN SOURCE PIZZA?
"Open Source Pizza" is the newest in the family of CYBER and ELECTRONIC Pizzas that were originally founded in 1984 to provide an informal monthly forum for engineers, technicians, consultants, and entrepreneurs to discuss their efforts to exploit the latest electronic technologies in areas such as broadcast and cable TV production, electronic imaging, information processing, telecommunications, testing & measurement, etc. Use this opportunity to network with "techies" and other individuals involved in high-tech development in Hawaii.
This event is sponsored by the Hawaii Open Source Education Foundation (HOSEF) - http://www.hosef.org and by the founders of the Cyberpizza and Electronic Pizza events -
