5.1 Box Hill T.A.F.E electronics dept.

When instructing students on the subject of main frame computing, rather than purchase a set
of X-terminals and a full blown unix box, the students throw a floppy disk into their
workstations and log in to a linux box.

The system that the students use is at

5.2 Binary Bar

When people visit the binary bar in Brunswick St Fitzroy (Melbourne Victoria Australia)
they gain the benifit of using a terminal for sending and recieving email etc.
The systems are booted slightly diferently than the netboot meathod I have shown here.
They create a boot floppy disk with the kernel on the floppy but then use bootp to mount
the nsf directory when starting the init process etc.
