I've got a pile (literally, seven or eight processors) of P-II CPUs
at work that we yanked from a bunch of old Dell machines before we
scrapped them.  I'm *really* liking the SE440BX board - and they're
widely available on eBay for around $10-20 shipped.  This one was 
$18.50 with shipping.

I think if I can find a good source of PC100 RAM, I may buy a few more
boards, throw them in cheap $30 cases, add some smallish IDE hard drives,
and have a bunch of boxes to experiment with things on.

I really like that the board auto-detects the CPU - today while working
with different configs, it was like "power off, unplug power, pull P2-450,
plug in P2-266, plug in, turn on".  No jumpers or anything.
