Bob, I have an Eden 500mhz mini itx PC running as a server at my house,
and haven't had a lick of trouble out of it. It has a small case from
axion-tech.com that has a 12v supply built in. I can't recall exactly,
but seems like it draws little more than 1 amp running windows. A word
of caution about the power supply though... it has _no_ 12v regulation,
so if you were to run it from the cigarette plug in a car, you could
apply 16volts to your HDD's 12v buss.
The eden MB only has one serial port, but you can easily add a USB
serial for $16 from usbmax.com, or use the PCI layover riser card that
comes with the axiontech case and add a pci serial card.
