                  Rolling Your Own Linux With Fedora

 Please join us for possibly the last NYLUG meeting any time soon*,
 and pizza, on Wednesday, April 15th, 2009 at 6:30 PM.

 Have you ever wanted to make your own custom remix of Linux that suits
 *your* needs, rather what someone else decided your needs might be?
 It's easier to do this with Fedora Linux than you probably think.

 First, we'll talk about why you might want to roll your own customized
 distribution of Linux, and then all of the the Open Source tools you'll use
 to do this with Fedora, (livecd-creator, pungi), and which tool to choose.

 Then we'll actually perform the process for a livecd, and use the USB
 creation tools to put that on a USB stick, and then give away that USB
 stick to a lucky audience member :)

 Then, courtesy of Fedora, there will be pizza!

 Jon will also have assorted Fedora swag (stickers, some buttons, a few
 shirts, media, etc).
