I believe few PLUG members have experience in setting up such
environment.  You can take their help.

How do you want me to act on it?  The willingness has to be there on
both the sides... more so on users side because they know their needs
more than anybody else.

While still on the topic, I know quite a few people who need help
about OpenOffice related stuff locally.  So if somebody is
enterprising there is ample space for OpenOffice expert in local
circles...
Wonder if there is such a user group of local people.

Another piece of (unwanted) advise.  Start with your existing PC, and
start using OpenOffice instead of MSOffice and then you would learn
whatever you need to lean about it.  YOu already know Linux... So tell
us where you need help and I am sure there are plenty of people
willing to help... including the the undersigned.
