I know that the outstanding feature of EXCH2010 is DAG. How many servers (physical or/and virtual) do I need to experiment the DAG in the LAB.?

If I create 2 virtual w2008 servers, one will have EXHC2010 Mailbox, CAS,HUB Roles and the other one will have Active Directory, EXCH2010 Mailbox Role.
I will also create one windows 2008 virtual for EDGE transport role.
My physical computer will have Outlook.
would that be enough ???
If I need to install email scanning and filtering , would that be in the EDGE server?
I also would like to know the difference between SMTP gateway and EDGE server role?

thanks
