Ahh ... ok ... the diskonchip units that I have seen just look like a
black plastic lump that plugs right into
an ide channel.
You may also want to hit ebay and look for a nokia ip120 before you
invest in a soekris box.
I won an ip120 for $56US
they are functionally equivalent to a soekris 4801
Pentium class 266 cpu
3 ethernet ports
and they come with a 10 gig hard drive
In mine I replaced the hard drive with one of these
The one I am using is only 64 megabytes though and I got it for $5US
