Small form factor cases/mobos for linux routers


What are some good options for a small form factor case and/or mobo combo to build a linux router with? I could just setup a regular size machine easily, but I want something that will be out of the way and small.

The shuttle xpc's look nice, but they seem overkill for just running a router. Any ideas and recommendations would be appreciated!

mini-itx motherboard. 170mm x 170mm with cases available. Look here:

www.mini-itx.com

linitx.org (linux forums)
linitx.com (buy stuff)

Also, VIA are soon coming out with nano-itx which is (i think..) 140mm x 140mm m/b
