Just in reference to the VIA EPIA board in that box:

	1.5 ago, they had an issue w/USB 2.0 in the linux kernel.  1.0 was  
fine, 2.0 had some sort of conflict with the driver for USB keyboard  
support.  Dunno if it was fixed or if that applies to you.

	there's a bunch of outdated info here ( in regards to linux ) 	 

	via was keeping info on those boards here : 	http://www.viaarena.com
	they had some support in terms of drivers and patches, but licensing  
issues weren't the hottest.

	if you end up with an EPIA board you most likely will need a custom  
kernel for anything that uses graphics / video.

	the kernel driver that it uses under linux is VIA_RHINE
