I would recommend something similar to the one I brought to the hardware hacking talk I did - it's about 20cm square by 5cm and stands on end, so the footprint is tiny. I have a motherboard that we can arrange a price for if you want it, and you can get a morex case from itx-warehouse.co.uk. The case I have comes with a 12v fanless psu. I also have a compactflash hdd caddy, which should make the finished product very quiet. You could probably squeeze a wireless card in with one of my right angle adapters fitted. I might be tempted to play with it if you don't feel like having a go ;)
