shoot i kinda agree with everyone here...maybe i should clarify.  i 
think the initial setup should be a install/hack fest type thing.  we 
can set these boxen up and also have folks interested/new to bsd bring a 
machine with them and we all, as a user-group, can help them out.  or 
people can just come by and hang out etc...   
    altho, once we get everything installed and running smoothly...i 
think it may be beneficial to have some organization as to who is using 
the lab and when.  i figure with the testing, most of it can happen 
remotely from the servers/workstations (assuming that each server has 2 
nic's, one for internet one for a the lab LAN).  this way we do not have 
to NOC to run/develop our tests, people can pretty much get togther 
anywhere to access the lab.

what do you all think, is this lab even going to be a long term setup?  
are we going to have multiple tests running on this setup?  if this 
works i think we would have a pretty nice setup...
