[vox] [fwd] Need to use a computer running Linux for 1-2 hours,one time

Margaret asked me to pass this along to the mailing list.
I've suggested she looks into live CDs (such as Knoppix), and pointed out
that LUGOD's got a booth at WEF with that very disc.  In the meantime,
in case anyone can help, please contact her directly.  Thanks!

Subject: Need to use a computer running Linux for 1-2 hours, one time
To: <pr@lugod.org>

I am a student in a Yuba College N+ Networking class. For one assignment only,
I need to use a computer running Linux.

I need to log in as root, use the groupadd, useradd, passwd commands, create a
small text file using the vi editor, change the permissions on this file, list
the contents of the directory, and export it to my flash drive.

I have done similar assignments before using Windows Server 2003, so I do not
anticipate great difficulty.

All I need is access to a computer running Linux, for this one assignment. I
do not want to install Linux on my computer.

Any suggestions? What's this I hear about a city of Davis computer lab on A
Street. Would that be a possibility?

Margaret Lirones
