Helping Vendors: was linux desktop from scratch

You know, after reading Laura Conrad's post, it occurred to me that we 
at BLU should be able to help ourselves and places like MicroCenter at 
the same time.  I'm not sure who/how to approach the store, but...

We could organize "build your Linux box" events at Microcenter where We 
would volunteer (I would!) and setup a table or two and help people  put 
together machines and try peripherals right there.  (Maybe in exchange 
for some hardware :-)

Users walk away with a functional and configured Linux box and 
MicroCenter gets to sell more boxes with fewer returns.
