How about learning by doing a project. Say, the sysadmins could build
and set up a terminal server, (plenty of scope here-- DHCP, networking
the linux way, messing around with X, authentication etc etc), the users
could sit in the bar for a few evenings, then they would get their
turn.  Would require one reasonable spec'd machine and any old crap for
the terminals.
