** Alex will put the hardware bits together, Darren to write down the description of what needs to come together and wiki-fy it. RP suggests that maybe getting all the pieces running on one hardware might be a good way to try it out just in case.
I can try getting everything running on one machine too - would it make
sense to try that all on e.g. emenlow, or all on a laptop using qemu, or
Everything on One machine doesn't make a lot of sense to me, for two reasons:

1) This is heavily network dependent, making sure the machines can find eachother is a critical aspect of testing this.
2) Qemu does some magic with tun/tap devices, you have to configure things to get multicast working between guests. I've tested the mediatomb image in qemu, it works. We need to test on real hardware.
3) We don't an image that will install everything on the same machine, and making one doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
4) Running a NAS to serve up media to itself doesn't test the networking side of things as well.

I'd rather use 3 real devices (even if they are all emenlow or blacksand) rather than qemu or all on one.
