> Based on your description of what you need, you'll probably want to set
up a lightweight server with a wireless adapter or linked to an existing
access point via an ethernet connection - you'll also need to find some way
of sending the delegates to the questionnaire as an initial page.  While
this can be done using netfilter, it's not exactly straightforward.

portal (commonly used for authenticating wireless guests in public
hotspots) - as these are usually configured to redirect guests to a
login/entry page.  I've only ever set these up on *BSD's so probably
wouldn't be much help here - but a quick search led me to
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/CoovaChilli which looks like a
good recipe to get you going....

I'm afraid this is bit beyond me (having read the link), I was hoping to
upload the questionnaires to my local web server, just as I would to a
remote server, and the give the local users this web address.
