I am all for hacking hardware but, I just thought I'd mention you can 
get a dual 1.5ghz V245 with disks and 8gb of ram for under $125 shipped 
on ebay any day now. A T1000 or T2000 for about the same if you go for 
it in an auction.  I've seen T2000 go for $89 + shipping. Most go for 
more though. It may not be worth spending a lot of effort and money on 
v210 motherboards. By the time you put together all the parts you will 
have spent more than a whole newer and faster machine.

The seller of this auction keeps listing 8 at a time and never seems to 
run out. I bought one and it was perfect. The packing was over the top. 
I have no connection just a happy camper. This one is only $99 shipped 
but, has no ram. Ram is easy to find though.
