[CS-FSLUG] Internet safety for school families

There is a Linux Distro that is based off of Ubuntu. Actually, it's pretty
much Ubuntu with some handy, faith-based programs pre-installed.

Not only does it come with Dansguardian already preconfigured, but it also
comes with a GUI for Dansguardian. I have it installed on my desktop and my
laptop. If you already have a cd of Ubuntu 7.04, you can just download a
script and do an upgrade; otherwise, you'll have to download the entire ISO.

Ubuntu CE is the name of the distro by the way.

Psalms 61:5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the
heritage of those that fear thy name.
Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and
to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.
