I have just bought two mini-ITX based boxes from www.linitx.com for
firewall use and I'm very pleased. They have various options that I
think would be ideal for the type of utility box you are talking about.
I have also used ASUS Terminator P4s and Pundits, from
www.ingrammicro.com , in other projects - these run very quietly and
so far without problem.
 IE only site... the muppets. Oh and you'll need a trade account with
