<<. And while you may have a lot of software-related configurations and fixes to do, the majority of people will not understand why they paid $500 for a computer and then have to pay $100 for two hours of training or fixing. After all, you don't buy a car and then pay for driving lessons. I think it would be better to cater to small businesses, but you run into the same problems. I would need at least 20 hours of work each week at $50 per hour just to start to make it worth the time. Given the above circumstances, I don't think you'd get much repeat business either... of course, I could be totally off base with my observations. Anybody else is free to chime in.

I've often thought that putting together home networks for people and small businesses would be a way to make money. That's a feature that is becoming increasingly useful but is too complex for many to master.
