MCS Computer Lab - Harder Hall 209

 
The MCS Lab, located on the second floor of Harder Hall, is a MS Windows computer lab that is maintained by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and by Information Technology.

At times the lab is closed to the public while a class meets in the room. At most other times (when the lab is open), students can use the PCs to work on assignments. Check the reservation sheet posted on the lab door for times when the lab is reserved.

Note:  To change password or perform other tasks
within Linux, or to learn more about the system,

a search you can use to find information about your

MCS Linux Lab - Harder Hall 207

The lab was constructed during the summer of 2005 and includes 20 Linux workstations along with an instructor's machine connected to an overhead projector. All workstations are connected to the Linux servers and to the campus network. Students can access their personal folders on Datastor.

The lab machines require a valid username and password to log on. These are not the same as the campus or e-mail names and passwords - since the Linux servers form a separate network (although attached to the campus net) and require a different set of usernames and passwords. This information is distributed by instructors or by the Linux Lab administrator, Lisa Schermerhorn (lscherme@skidmore.edu) in HH208.

To acquire an account, students must sign the user agreement (see the sidebar at the right). Download it, sign it, and return to your instructor or to Lisa.
