I have a client who wants to setup an office using virtual desktops.  He has a beefed up server (8 cores, 48GB RAM & SAN).  

This will be a create everything from scratch environment.

I need to know what I will need to implement this in a LAN only environment, and also for future growth, a WAN environment.

How many servers will I need (i.e. AD Server, etc...), will I need the Gateway (?) for LAN only implementation..

Lost and want to get caught up to speed very quickly as he is calling tomorrow for my input.

Thanks.
