An InstallFest is an event where lots of people get together and have LinuxDistributions installed on their computers. Typically computers are owned by less experienced Linux users and the installations are performed by more experienced Linux users. Random note: If you have a FreeBSD install party, it's called an Installathon.

See our NewToLinux page if you want more background or hints using Linux or *BSD distributions.

Our next installfest is planned for 6th October, 2007

WaikatoLinuxUsersGroup has previously held two installfests.
