I don't remember if it was him, but someone mentioned taking a laptop
for the audio and just a good 3d card fir gem and rely on the venue to
provide a reasonably fast machine.

I tried two gfx cards but not with gem, but that shouldn't be a problem
if you use the right cards XFree4 can do it, NT is said to do it but
I personally don't use m$ products

definitely yes

depends, these cards are commonly called dual headed, most modern laptops
come with this type though I haven't seen this working under linux yet,
works on windows though.

since mark danks mentioned the ps2 I can't get the idea out of my head having
a decent subnotebook and a ps1 in my rucksack and use the ps with linux as
the gem machine ;)
