These Mini-ITX boxes seem to be exactly what I'm looking for...(with
more handywork involved, but i like that). My only real concern is
getting RH 7.3 or 9 to run on it. From what I've seen so far the VIA
EPIA 5000 seems to run RH just fine. But I just wanted to ping y'all to
see if you had any problems / successes with this motherboard?
