The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, May 10.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Topic Duo: Linux mdadm and LDAP

   In this day of 3 TB disk drives, it might have occurred to you that
   not having to restore the whole disk from backup if it fails would
   be wonderful. RAID can help you with that eventuality! Just buy
   another $140 3 TB drive and then, um... what? Kevin McGregor will
   cover the basics of RAID and the practice of creating and managing
   software RAID arrays in Linux.

   Rob Keizer will also be providing a mini-topic for tonight's
   meeting: The basics of LDAP. Rob will provide an overview of what
   LDAP is, what it does, and why it is used. Emphasis will be on
   applications of LDAP, and will include a basic demo of setting up
   and using LDAP with PAM.

   Before the break, Mike Pfaiffer will present an RTFM topic on
   navigating directories with the cd, pushd and popd commands, which
   are built in to the bash(1) and tcsh(1) shells.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
   (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, 
   so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may
   not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not
   be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.) Non-members may be required
   to show photo ID at the security desk.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice
   Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also
   available nearby, at Portage Place, for $5.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
