EIFUS Projects

NEABUG Project

EIFUS was originaly created, in June of Y2K, by Dr. Zharko in an attemp to see how much Free Stuff was available to User Groups on the web. After recruiting some coworkers and a few family members into the group, we soon realized we have a fairly talented group of users. I, Dr. Zharko, alone have installed 6 diferent Distributions of Linux, Solaris i386, and 3 different BSD *nix's (Some succesfully). 

Other members have done some of the same as well as built a Beowulf Cluster, worked with MySql, built Linux/FreeBSD Routers, setup Oracle boxes , etc..... Our group can best be characterized as some people who try out new things in the *nix/Opensource community and want to share our ideas. 
If you are interested in joining our Users Group you can contact drzharko@burgess.eifuss.org. We are based out of the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area and sometime we will begin holding meetings in either one or both of these cities.
