Requirement workshop question

Hi!
I am making a requirement specification for a webproject which will have several different users/roles in the system.
I am going to conduct workshop where I first start with a brainstorming session of functional reqs. Asking the users what kind functions they want in the system. I will put each req on a note on a whiteboard.
After that Im thinking about sorting these reqs and grouping them into different topics

My questions concerns the next step.
When they are grouped I will try to go deeper on each requirement and writing the "deeper" requirements and explanations on the back of each note.
My questions is, what kind of questions should I ask, and how should I document them?
I am the only one conducting the workshop and the reqs will be written on A5 papers.

I would be very pleased if you could give me an example of a real system.

For example lets say that one of the participants says: You should be able to book tickets.

You may be better off documenting current roles and business processes (model). What is being entered by who? Who needs that information ? What end of day/week/month/qtr/year aggregated reporting is required (may not require everyone) ? What is calculated or analyzed? What are the outputs required ?

Look over their should and have a look at the files. What tasks can be automated or streamlined ? What are the checks and minimum/preferred requirements before a form/task is safe and complete ?

Create mockup screen shots with static elements to illustrate before making the application dynamic and DB driven. Show them the menu’s, functions and business processes (eg. customer service enquiry form, enter a purchase order, view sales performance). Then ask them what they want to change.

Use an off the shelf product, someone elses demo site or competitors site to illustrate possible features and design. Don't care too much of exact layout and colours at this stage. Now your ready for your workshop.
