I happen to be in Madison and I've already offered to upgrade John's 
machine for him. But there is a really, really good computer repair shop 
in Madison that does linux. It's called Madison Computer Works. I've 
been doing business with them since the mid-90s even before I knew 
anything about linux myself.
