Thank you for the offers
These messages have been forwarded to the sponsoring-responsible.

Concerning network-hardware:
We are currently investigating an interesting way to buy very cheap
quality networking-hardware. That's probably the reason why you didn't
get a confirmation about lending material. Thanks again for the offer. We
will contact you certainly if we need this material.

Concerning a booth:
To keep the high-technical level of the event and due to the high-amount
of requests for booths we prefer not to give sponsors a
commercial/promotional booth-space.
The visitors should only find booths concerning opensource projects.

If you want to support the organisation donations are always welcome.
We have a huge list of 'return-for-donators' to thank you. More
information can be found here: <http://fosdem.org/2008/support/donate>
