What about "Bring your own favorite phone"? :-)
IMHO the Polycoms are a bad choice for the test because they
reboot for every modification of the SIP account parameters so
unless you have previous experience with the Polycoms you will
loose a lot of time.
BTW: The default username/password is "Polycom"/"456".

Yeah, that's a bit hard to guess.
As far as the analog card and DAHDI is concerned: I just skipped
this part and didn't even compile DAHDI. Go for the bonus credit:
AFAICR it was something about DND and call forwarding. Don't waste
your time on ODBC or MySQL or anything that I would normally do.
Make sure you are familiar with either vim or kate/kwrite.
Start compiling, and meanwhile read the rest of the test.
Don't try to remove the default stuff from the sample config files.
"Quick & dirty" is the motto.
