Thanks for your advice.
Yes, it would fit in the card slot but not necessarily electrically
(doesn't need to plug into a slot). I figured I could remove the PCIE
riser in the host system to allow physical room and plug power into it off
the hosts PSU or pico like wall wart.
It needs 2 1GB NICs and at least an Atom D510 for CPU. I'll like it to
have a CF slot for the OS storage.
Yes Dawg, I would like a Linux server in my Linux server.
