needless to say that I fully support this suggestion, even though I've never 
been there nor it is close to my home ;)

Let me state what SuSE CZ could offer:
- a couple of extra machines
- parts (keyboards, cables, switches; anything of that sort)
- organizing the transport from Prague to Nové Hrady

Finally, please realize that the prices in Czech Republic are far more 
favorable than in any country around (Austria, Germany). A typical hotel 
price for one night is about 10 - 20 Euros, food and drinks are for much less 
(lunch menu for ~ 3 Euro; a beer for less than one Euro). I'm sure this is a 
big advantage :-)
