      Can you supply 6 terminals and set up the network machine for the infoage display so that staff can host an interactive exhibit?

      We have on this list been talking about setting up a terminal network for years...if it's so easy to setup and support why don't we have one?

      I have the server and it's ready to be installed. All we need are 6 donated pc's capable of tcpip communications with a server and someone to write the website. We also need a 8 port switch and ethernet cables.
