Maybe we could ask some of the Linux Distro with a Aussie presense for a
donation, with a plug on the website stating they purchaed the
equipment,

By my reckoning all that is needed is:

DV Cam =~ $2000.00
Mic = $250 / could audio not be plugged straight into the rooms audio
console.
DV Card for PC $500.00

Broadcast 2000 = FREE !!!
 All up around $3000.00 I don't know if the linux companies have loads
of cash to burn anymore, but this would be a great resource for
everybody.
