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
128mb memory
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
