Dear colleagues

I am please to announce that I have just ported a tutorial located on
the Access Grid Documentation Project website to AG-Central called
"Access Grid Operational Guide for Linux"

"The operational guide for the Access Grid has been designed to help
users start and use the Access Grid and its associated software. This
guide has been written using the Linux operating system, Fedora Core 3.
Though, it should be mentioned that there are a lot of similarities for
the Access Grid software that can be transposed to most of the other

This operational guide has been split into a number of sections,
including the operating of the Access Grid using the AG2.3 software and
the running of each media applications manually. This guide demonstrates
how to run operate a multi-node (Room based) Access Grid and a single
node (Portable) Access Grid. This guide also contains sections on how to
display video streams and how to shutdown your node. Other sections of
this guide demonstrates how additional devices can be used in
conjunction with the Access Grid and a few troubleshooting tips are
provided throughout the guide.

There are a few things that this guide will assume:

    * This guide will assume that you are familiar with your operating
system but not necessarily familiar with the Access Grid software.

    * This guide will also assume that your Access Grid has been
configured correctly and ready to use. If you need assistance in doing
this you may wish to visit http://agcentral.org/help/ and investigate
the other documentation there.

    * This guide will assume that you are familiar with the particular
setup you are using (ie you are not at someone else's node).

This guide will use the terminology "video wall". This is where you
display video streams, whether it is through projectors onto a wall,
plasma screens, or multiple monitors."

If you have any questions, or find sections that are in error, please
don't hesitate to contact me.  Most of the documentation on AG-Central
are living documents and will hopefully be improved as the AG Technology
improves and changes.

Thanks very much for your time,
