Here is general information about Install Fests:

Hardware: Bring the boxes on which you wish to run a Free OS.

Software: Bring whatever distribution CDs, boot and rescue disks, boot
managers, tiny distributions, manuals, and anything else you

Important: Everything done to/with any computer at any Install Fest,
and in particular, at this Install Fest, is done at the
specific request of the owner of the computer. As with
all human endeavor, there is some risk of catastrophe.
Back up all your data, before coming to the Fest! In addition,
make a list of all hardware and media you bring to the Fest,
and check that you have all your hardware and media when you
leave the Fest.
