Anyone think they can help out?

Since I haven't seen email from Jim lately, I guess I'll try my best
to coordinate this.  Basically do we : have anyone close to Corel that
could install this, or, I guess, anyone going to the ALS that feels
comfortable installing this.  Barring that, anyone reasonably close
that maybe he could fedex it to? (That's just my idea, I'm not sure
they would go for it).

Hi David:

I have a favor to ask you and your team, please help with the Debian
install.  Knowing that you and I want this to go smoothly, and knowing
that things are crazy busy here, it would be great if someone at
Debian could commit to getting the system up and running.

Please let me know.
