to install a server at all.

For running networks and servers, you have to know the protocols, the
services and how you intelligently structure a network. The operating
system doesn't free you from the need of that knowledge. Either the
teacher is technical or somebody else should do the work. Outsourcing
could be one possible way to cleverly do the latter.

We have to make all the people out there that _there_ _is_ Free
Software. Proposing such a model is the second, not the first step.

Hm. It'd be better to get the tools and the software in place.

Goes for all FSFe operations :)
