I'm in Frome and would be interested regardless of not knowing how to 
become a LUG member. I attended something called Linux Boot Camp at UWE 
and they had a lot of people new to GNU/Linux. They were doing a "build 
and boot" aimed at new users and installed Slackware. Those that really 
didn't like a heavy text installation and reading documentation had 
other LiveCDs as an alternative. You could encourage people to bring old 
and spare computers and really learn about the O/S by installing 
something like Slack as opposed to a 10 minute run through of Ubuntu.
