Four of those were/are < 50W each and a low power Soekris equivalent
is too expensive for me if the existing motherboards and ram are
still working. I need two or three ethernet and am unable to find
equivalent boards for less than arm + leg prices. How many watts do
I need to save for spending an extra 200 quid per board?

I now have a couple of new Atom boards but overlooked the lack of
eide interfaces :-(
I've never tried PXE-boot but that'ts option one. After first one the
remainder will be very easy.

I'm also investing in a DIY surge protector per system as the three
UPS I had were no protection and failed.
