That power limit is if you use the Soekris case and wall-mount power 
supply.  The board has a 6 pin MTA100 header for DC power.  You can put 
your own 5 VDC power supply on the center two pins and provide pretty 
nearly as much current as you want.  The 3.3 volt pins on the PCI connector 
will still be power limited to  three watts, and there will be no 12 volts 
delivered.  But if you are putting your own power supply in the case, you 
can probably power the PCI card with it directly if those limitations are 
too much.

Kids, we're trained professionals.  Don't try this at home.
