This sounds like an excellent idea.  Unfortunately, since I am just 
starting this process (starting an ISP on FreeBSD), I can't be much help, 

If someone does this, it might be a good idea to make the notes that 
the presenters are going to use for the seminar available to this 
group first.  That way other people could try to make helpful 
suggestions, AND people like me would have a really good reference 
of how to do/setup certain things that we aren't real comfortable with yet.
