I'm prepping my Ultra 5 now as a server and have tons of space.  Still
populating it now.  So I don't think server space is an issue.

Is anyone bringing long patch cables?  I think that is one area we are
still short on.

And will we have enough IP addresses to go around at this event or is a
NAT'ing firewall needed?

I think it would be useful if someone had a CD-R with them and some
blank CD's for the architectures that must boot from CD.  For example, I
know a lot of the PCI bus UltraSPARC systems have great difficulties
booting from floppy.  We may run into laptops as well that don't have a
floppy drive installed.
