There is a Linux users group meeting 3rd Saturday of every month in Dallas, which is somewhere near to Waxahachie I think. See here their website: http://www.ntlug.org
. Seems the calendar is not up to date, but there is activity on their mailing lists so you might find somebody that can help you by sending a message to the mailing list (it's under the "forum" heading). Generally there are helpful folks at LUG meetings, so if those are still ongoing that is also a good way.
