The offer of help does not have a time limit.  I think you've
identified a problem we're going to have to deal with, whenever we can
find time to do it.  If I have time this weekend I might try making
photos of my PC when it displays various BIOS screens and see how that
goes.  If we make detailed instructions with lots of screen shots I
think we'll do a lot of good.  Unfortunately, I don't have a Mac, just
Windows and Linux.  I would do instructions for Windows, because the
Linux folks won't need them.

Good luck with the convention!

P.S. Netbook case?  My XO-1 fits nicely in my briefcase with room left
over for two water bottles, a cell phone, and chargers for the XO-1
and the phone.  I don't need no stinkin' Netbook case!
