If you look at
http://www.infodrom.org/Debian/events/LinuxTag2002/hardware.html you
see that we have some more :)
8 computers now, 5 Architectures.

If outside then there must be some space between D and the end of
booth. So that you dont stand in the floor.

Dont forget the SE Enhanced Debian where everyone could try to break in.

If you trust me enough. Im only interested in 3, max. 4 of the talks,
see below.

Today i plan to visit the following things:
7.6. 9:00 PostgreSQL  (*ONLY* if there is nothing interesting with the
                      Debian Day)
8.6. 9:00 Samba & LDAP (this is important :) )
8.6. 11:00 QT Designer. (Just for fun, can be killed if there is noone
                        else in the booth at this time :) )
9.6. 9:00 PAM

One of my machines is for Russel Coker, the SE System. It should also
be the FTP Server for local Installation Demos. And the pppoe-Server to
demonstrate the DSL-Installation.
Hey, i must have a ISDN Card somewhere. I will test if it still works,
so we can show ISDN4Linux on Debian too. I also have 2 USR Courier
I-Modem. So we can play "ISP" for the Show ? (I dont know what else we
need for that to work).

On my 2 Systems there is nothing important. :)
I dont know if Russel is there at Wednesday. If yes he probably
installs the SE System at WE Evening. If not i give him SSH Access. I
can do that for the other Machine too. But then we have to talk at
which time, i dont want to run them 24hours :)
Thats for my 2 Machines :)
