	  presented by Jeff Woodward

	  OpenAFS is a distributed filesystem product, pioneered at
       Carnegie Mellon University and supported and developed as
       a product by Transarc Corporation (now IBM Pittsburgh Labs).
       It offers a client-server architecture for file sharing,
       providing location independence, scalability and transparent
       migration capabilities for data.
       IBM branched the source of the AFS product, and made a copy
       of the source available for community development and
       maintenance. They called the release OpenAFS.

8:50  Roundtable Exchange - where the attendees can make
       announcements or ask a linux question.

Please see the website for links to directions.

If any area companies are interested in sponsoring refreshments, please
let me know.

Please RSVP so we can give a refreshment sponsor a headcount.
