We've had PPCs, Alphas and SPARCS. We do not provide the distros
although we generally have a copy or two of Red Hat and SuSE. It is up
to the attendee to bring any specialized distro. 

Way back when we first started to do them, we were able to get Red Hat
to supply us with some boxed sets, but we stoped that a few years ago.
