[Gllug] Very small Linux computer

Has anyone got any suggestions for a very small computer to run Linux?
It is for a robot and so really only needs a basic interface to the
world, no gfx, no sound etc. Ideally able to support I2C and/or CAN
bus. I would like to interface with this thing remotely, so wireless or
radio would be useful, but remote access it not a priority.
I am programming it in c++, so I need to be able to run self compiled
c++ apps on it. I have looked at the miniITX machines, but I would gess
they would draw a fair amount of power for the features on the machine I
would not be needing, but set up would be dead easy and I could just
plonk a wireless PCMCIA network card in it. I had also considered
trying to find an old laptop, pentium or something. The uCsimm looks tasty:
although pricey and it looks pretty difficult to get running. Cost is a
large issue, I have very little money at the moment (between jobs).
Really I am just after some recommendations, is there anything I have
missed that will do the job?
Would take up a fair amount of room too.
