Hey guys / girls

I was asked to get a VDI project completed by December 3rd using Horizon View 6 w/ advanced license.  There will be 20 0-clients being deployed, I believe I only need a single Windows 7 image to push out to all of them (same image for all).

First, is it possible in this time frame?  11/20 - 12/3?

Second.. I see that there are multiple components available for this.. but I cant find documentation on what I should do first...

One document I found lists the following server components but doesnt say if they are mandatory for every install of view or if certain only need to be installed if i need X functionality etc:

View connection Server (i know this one is needed)
View Administrator Server
View Composer Server
View Transfer Server

Do I need to deploy all of these for my needs or just the Connection Server?  

I guess I need to know:

What are the pre-requisites?
How many VMs do I need to spin up as servers for this project?
Which servers do I need to deploy of the ones I mentioned for my specific use?
How long would something like this usually take from scratch?
What size HDD should I create for the Connection Server? (Hardware requirements list 4cpus, 1 1gb nic, 10gb ram for 50 desktops but nothing for hdd size...

Hope to hear from someone soon, hoping I have enough time to complete this :\
