I'll make Windows & Linux installation movies in the next day or  
so.   I've switched my capture machine to one that has Parallels, so  
I can easily switch between Windows, Mac OS X, and Ubuntu.   A real  
benefit is that I can do some movies using the Sugar interface in  
Ubuntu, which I'll do when I get into how to load and save projects  
in Etoys.  I'll probably show all ways to do it (all platforms) ...  
haven't decided yet.
