they are 5 watts, which is great, and many of them have dual ethernet, 1 
has 3 ethernets.

but they only have 256k memory, and don't have any SATA, just CF and 
maybe a PCI slot.  and the geode is a really slow CPU, probably 1/4 the 
speed of an Atom.  fine for a firewall router, running a totally 
stripped down OS like pfSense.   not so fine for what the OP needs.
