If you're starting out small, might I suggest you try to service a niche 
customer base that isn't being serviced by many other businesses?  That way, 
when someone wanting to order say, alpha distros, will be more likely to find 
their way to your "door".  Everyone wanting an i386 distro usually just goes 
to linuxmall, or cheepbytes, or some of the other established debian 

Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you 
will hear the voice of Satan?

That's nothing!  If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
