        The next PLUG West meeting will be held on Thursday,
        November 15 at Unisys in Malvern.  Jim Trocki will give a
        presentation on iSCSI and its Linux implementation.

        iSCSI can serve as an effective alternative to Fiber Channel
        for storage networks by allowing hosts to communicate with
        storage devices at a block level over common Ethernet equipment.
        It provides high throughput, flexible configuration options,
        and can reduce costs by leveraging several things: existing
        system and IP networking infrastructure equipment, engineer
        skill bases, and the economies of scale in the IP networking
        device industry.

        Interested in Linux, BSD, and Free Software?  Whether you're
        already an enthusiast or want to learn more, come and join
        us!  PLUG meetings are open to everyone, and anyone who is
