    Sounds great to me. I believe what James suggested 
was an intro to Linux for people who are pretty much 
unfamiliar with it, probably Mac or Windows users who 
are curious to know what it's about. 
    Assuming so, an intro would begin with essential 
GUI orientation with an overview of available apps 
and rudimentary exercise of wi-fi and a web browser. 
    Getting into CLI stuff would be an "advanced" 
topic. 
    That's my impression of what's needed. Anything 
you want to teach, of course, is welcome. 

    On Tuesdays from 3 to 4:30 PM we have a Linux Sys 
Admin class that's got a heavy CLI component. 
    On Wednesdays from 6 to 8 PM there's a Linux 
discussion group that's free wheeling, partly a time 
and place for Linux people to hook up, partly a time 
and place for people to bring fix-it problems, partly 
check out news....
