Hi Brydon: I saw one of these in use at a MUMU meeting some months ago. 
You may want to ask Victor on the MUMU list: 
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/mumu-ca/

or on the Ubuntu-ca list itself: 
https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-ca (via 
http://ubuntu-ca.org/ )

(not meaning to take the wind out of the KWLUG list, just wanting to 
steer people to where the answers are)

--Bob.
