This will be a tremendous showcase for the K12LTSP; kudos to you guys 
spending time (and money) to put it together.

When we did this for the Pacific Telecommunication Conference


a table was set up for those with their own laptops.  This did not 
expose them to Linux, but it was appreciated.  We had to shorten the 
renewal time for the dhcp leases, though, since people came and went.

My unsolicited piece of advice: be prepared for users wanting to plug in 
their usb keychains.  We did not prepare for this and a few people were 
disappointed.  With the recent work and documentation on this, it seems 
pretty possible.
