I took the "aso-laptop" and made it into Ubuntu a couple months ago. Today I added it to the Martian network and then moved it to the X End.
I followed the instructions in (https://wiki-40m.ligo.caltech.edu/Network) and added it to the files in /var/named/chroot/var/named on linux1 and did the "service named restart".
The router already had his MAC address in its list (because Yoichi was illegally using his personal laptop on the Martian). The new laptop's name is 'asia'. This is a legal name according to our computer naming conventions and this Wikipedia page (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Category:Italian_female_given_names). It has been added to the Name Pool on the wiki.
The terminal on the laptop still calls itself 'aso-laptop' so I need some help in fixing that. It successfully connects to 40MARS and displays a MEDM sitemap after sshing in to pianosa.
I use 'ssh -X -C' since I find that compression actually helps when the laptops are so far from the router.
