First off, make sure you're familiar with the numerous Linux-in-education
projects out there, if you aren't already.

Check out sites like:

Secondly, you may be able to enlist help from local gurus (or people willing
to learn :^) ).  There apparently used to be a Linux Users Group in Vermont

to have vanished.

An extremely quick Google search came up with these folks, though:

  VAGUE - Vermont Area Group of Unix Enthusiasts

Depending on where in Vermont you are, there may be other LUGs or Unix UGs
close-by, with people who can help out.

See GLUE listings for the US:

Good luck!!!
