Rather than sign up with one of these online storage sites so as to be
able to back up my files and be able to share (via http or anonymous
ftp) the occasional large file (under 100 MB) with off-site friends/
colleagues/clients, I'm contemplating setting up a very small, very low
end linux box.

What kind of very small footprint, low profile, low noise, low end box
(case, motherboard, and CPU) do you all recommend? I'd be perfectly
happy with 200 MHz processor with passive cooling (in fact I'd prefer
passive cooling), a 40 GB hard disk drive, and a 3 cm. tall case.

Ideas? I haven't decided if I'd like this box to have a CD/DVD burner,

Many thanks,
