New Mexico Linux Corps
The New Mexico Linux Corps is an outreach project at New Mexico State
University which partners with interested school districts to compliment
and assist their efforts as they expand the resources available to their
students in terms of OpenSource software and computers running the Linux
A quick survey of businesses and government institutions that rely on
Linux and OpenSource, daily, serves to emphasize the need for increasing
its' presence in our schools: Google, Yahoo, Pixar, Amazon, Sony, NASA,
Intel, IBM, OSX, FAA, NSA, CIA, FBI, DOE, DHS, NMSU, UNM, U.S. Military,
Raytheon, Locheed Martin, Boeing, General Dynamics, Zianet,
Hewlett-Packard, Hughs, Harris, Los Alamos, Sandia, Autozone, Novell,
Calculex, Oracle, Shell, Conoco, Home Depot, Digital Domain, U.S. Postal
Service, LCPS, State of Massachusetts, State of Indiana, Motorolla, and
many more. As of today, Linux is the fastest growing software and powers
8/10 of the worlds' fastest supercomputers.
Many school districts around the country -- indeed, the world -- have
recognized the importance of Linux and OpenSource in today's workforce,
and successfully educate their students with-and-about it. As New Mexico
works to preserve its' status as a center for high-tech creativity we
need to empower the next generation with a more complete set of
practical skills to implement their innovations. The long-term benefit
to the State of New Mexico will be the production of graduates with
familiarity and capabilities in an area upon-which our local economies
We are currently in the process of advancing our program to provide
modest financial support for a handful of mobile tech-staff to assist
interested schools in Southern New Mexico with installation, training,
application development, and technical support. We look forward to
working together with these pioneering schools to expand the educational
opportunities for their students, our future.
Teaching with-and-about Linux and OpenSource has the potential to
profoundly affect the lives of many students in positive ways. The New
Mexico Linux Corps project remains committed to serving the students,
the schools and the State of New Mexico.

I've had gentoo 2005.1 with a 2.6.15-r1 gentoo kernel installed
for the past 6 months. Recently, my ethernet card conked off
and after lots of testing, I was advised by my 'knowledgeable' cablenet
operator to get a new one - so I did.
I've got an intex lan card with an Realtek 8139d chipset now
and I got a drivers cd along with that. I tried compiling the source for the
module which they've provided in that CD but was
unsuccessful. I used to have a Pronet card with a Realtek 8139 chipset and
that was autodetected during installation.
What I was wondering was if there is any other way to go about
installing this new ethernet card and also unregister the old one; as during
boot it gives an error saying that eth0 is not present or something to that
I tried looking up google and forums, but couldn't find much.
Thanks in advance.

Who knows? The child might just solve all these problems. eg., she
might come with a KPaint that kicks Paint's a$$!
IMHO it is much better to expose a child to things she can do, than
stuff ready-made for her.

there anyone indidival or any trainning institute who can conduct a small
session for me on on Linux hand's on .
Looks like MTNL has joined the band wagon of crappy ISPs of India.
For the past 3 days, I have been experiencing erratic net access to the
"Internet." I run my own DNS (bind) - an inordinate time for a name
lookup is a good indication that queries to the root servers are not
Usually, a reboot of the modem has solved the problem. However, today
around 15:00 it got to the point that I was not able to ping the MTNL gw
22.214.171.124 assigned to the Triband subnet. Upon further
investigation I found that my modem/router was not getting any dynamic
IP assignment for about an hour (ATM link layer checked out OK).
My connection is off the Khar(W) Exchg.
Anybody with TriBand service experiencing the same?

As stated in one of the earlier emails to the list,
you can do it by yourself. You might explore a lot
more, but disadvantages like inconsistency (aaj kiya,
kal nahi, parson kiya, badme nahi....and so on...)
time consumption is more (if you are fairly new) and
have no idea of what of Windows to GNU/Linux
Alternative (that's how I learnt, but that may not be
the best or correct way)
What you would probably require is to know which are
the best sources for this.
Among the billion's, here are a few of them which I
would list out
1. the distro's (that you are using) website of
documentation / how to's page
3. a few articles from http://desktoplinux.com/
5. en.wikipedia.org (gr8 for some jargons that you
might not know)
and yes....for all google-ites, there's always
