The April meeting of the Triangle Linux Users Group will be held at 7:00
PM on Thursday April 13, 2006 at Red Hat.  Directions are available from
our website at http://www.trilug.org/.

Matt Frye will present an overview of the Xen project, Xen's relative 
strengths and weaknesses, and the basics of installation and configuration.

Xen is a virtual machine monitor (VMM) for x86-compatible computers. Xen 
can securely execute multiple virtual machines, each running its own OS, 
on a single physical system with close-to-native performance.  Learn 
more at: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Research/SRG/netos/xen/

Red Hat is providing food and drinks for our April meeting.  Red Hat is 
hosting the Red Hat Summit May 30-June 2 in Nashville, TN.  Hear 
keynotes from Nicholas Negroponte, Eben Moglen, and Cory Doctorow. 
Attend track-specific sessions on Emerging Technologies, Open Source 
Dynamics, and Storage, Virtualization, and Clustering.  Enjoy three 
nights' accommodations at the Gaylord Opryland Resort, admission to all
