I plan to bring my laptop to the meeting on Wednesday and it meets two of
your minimum requirements (1024x768 and Firefox) right now.  I will be
upgrading to SuSE 9.3 professional tonight (currently 9.0) so I'll check on
the precise version of emacs after the upgrade.  I can meet you there at
6pm (or earlier if necessary) if you want to put your files on it then.  I
cannot part with it before that time as it is my main "work" machine.  If
you can burn the necessary files to CD/DVD then they can be loaded from
disc or off of USP's network.

Hope this helps.
