Could be done after BOOTES Team comes on site but could be easily done before, to allow for a remote setup - sparing more time for the unexpected. I guess Ubuntu server edition could be done easily in the PC shop.
This, however, depends on the availability of internet connection on site prior to arrival of BOOTES Team.

Router / switch, so that we can connect all together (do we want EVERYTHING connected to Internet?) The archive PC could serve as a router/firewall to the Internet, 10/100/1000Mbit/wireless router would be handy to provide a good connection of all components together with notebooks of operators when on site.
UPS provided by New Zealand? Must be able to support emergency roof closing (power failure). We have same good experiences from Watcher with MGE UPS Systems UPS (http://www.mgeups.com). I suggest to call them and ask for solution - 3 PC backup, preferably rack mounted, and let us see what they suggest.
We bought this http://www.acquire.co.nz/acquire/default.asp?PageID=ProductDetail&pf_id=447625&dept_id=1700010 for roof - 1900W, 2200VA, shall be enough. We need at least 450W for a single server, but we need to check specs before we will buy UPS for it. So it is recommended to first buy server, then UPS, or buy 1200W UPS for two servers.
GPS should be a part of telescope delivery and if yes, we can use it for timing. But we need to check that (Alberto?).
