On my desktop machine:

    SBLive Value with MIDI interface adapter
    2 Yamaha TX802 FM synths
    1 DMP11 mixer

On the laptop:

    Kawai K4r

But the truth is that I rarely use the synths anymore. If I can get FM7 
running under WINE or fst then I'll probably sell the 802s.

No problems configuring either interface. Slight difficulties re: USB 
MIDI were resolved thanks to Clemens' advice here on LAU.
