Cool! Thanks Andreas.
I am thinking of using one for the same thing.

I use a VIA EPIA PD-10000 as a small dsl- router / ftp / print /
whatever-server for my LAN here at home running FreeBSD 5.4. The NICs, HDD,
USB, CLI work fine. Audio and X-Windows should work too. (I have only tested
this on an EPIA M-10000, but there it worked without any problems. The
onboard graphic chip is fast enough for most 2D application, but it was to
slow for me to playback xvid/divx, but an additional PCI graphic card should
solve this problem.) When transfering data via ftp I get about 10MB/s
up/down. Make buildworld takes about two hours. All in all, it is a nice
system and fits my needs. I like it.
