Can we use the nvidia for dualhead? Also, a USB CD drive or a USB key 
for installations is a necesity with this box.

Okay, that is sufficient.

Considering it is his primary machine: Do we even need Gerhard's box 
then? Can someone else bring a secondary machine? I agree with Gerhard 
that the 40GB drive should be enough for experimentation and 
demonstration. I have a snapshot of our repos on my laptop anyway (which 
I can also use for demonstration purposes while I am around), so we 
could used FTP over LAN. I think I will bring the 120GB HD anyway.

I have a 5-port which we could use for the booth, then we use your 
16-port and my wireless AP for the project room.

I can't think of something right now. Anyone?

Hmm, of course, keyboards and mice in a sufficient quantitiy :)
