Mini Linux Servers??

Somewhere in my rambling travels through the wilds of the internet, I remember reading several reviews of small boxes that will run as a headless Linux system. I have no idea where I read this, but I figured someone here might have an idea where to look for reviews of this type of item.

I think my server computer is going to have to be re-tasked as a home entertainment computer. Leaving me with no internal FTP site or webserver for toying with.

Thanks,
Brian

Re: Mini Linux Servers??

Can you give a better description of what these systems are and do? Might make it easier to help you out.

The ones I remember reading about were computers based on pc104 boards. Basically they are small form factor computers holding a hard drive, basic video and sound outputs, network connections, a "slow" processor (pentium to slower p3 class), and memory. They aren't particularly upgradable, but they will perform small webserver, ftp site, and file sharing duties quite well.

I can't come up with many more details off the top of my head. Things have been running around in my mind like crazy with about 10 unfinished tech projects around the house.

Yeah, software like that is what I am looking at, but I was looking to see if anyone had any hardware information or links.
