Talking Embedded Systems - What should I use?

Hey All

First post in like months!
SO- What I need is someone to suggest a solution to my problem,

I need a motherboard that is low powered, low processor (like 400Mhz is way more than what I need).
I need two LAN connections 10Mbit or higer, 64 Ram and a floppy or ide adapter.

Also they should be able to ship to UK

Can anyone help me cheers

A friend of mine is big on the Soekris boxes.

I find the mini-itx rather sexy myself.

What'cha building? Router/firewall?

Reply, yeh a router firewall box. IM gonna use a small linux distro and plonk squid on there i think... like a cache proxy but with a firewall.
That way the network wont need constant access to the internet, and also, it will solve some problems with routing internet traffic through the server which has to be windows server 2000 (yuck) so has trouble with nat etc.
