1. Introduction

This document provides some guidelines that should help you run a successful installfest. For purposes of this document, an installfest is a gathering at which experienced Linux users assist less experienced users with the installation and configuration of Linux distributions, and where Linux users can bring Linux systems to receive assistance with system problem remediation.

Please take from this document whatever you want. It is meant to be a guide, not a recipe that must be followed exactly to have a successful installfest. Any installfest where most of the people leave happy is a successful event.
