I find this forum very very helpful.
I'd like to build FC4 Web server with a Shuttle box, actually one of these here: http://global.shuttle.com/Product/Ba...rb_default.asp
The reason I'd like to use small form factor box is that this will be used at home to host a personal web server via Cable/DMZ-of-Wireless-Router. So it's important that it should be quiet and small in size. I've narrowed down my choices to one of these 3.
1) My personal favorite is SB86i because it seems like it's a quiet unit.
2) I'm also considering SK21G because it's of AMD line.
3) This is also an option.
with Chipset: SiS661FX.
One thing I'd like to find out is whether the box will boot up without complaining about missing keyboard/mouse. As far as I know Intel boxes won't continue beyond error message when it doesn't find keyboard/mouse. As I plan to admin it via ssh I don't want to connect monitor/keyboard/mouse to the box. I hope to have this Shuttle in a corner of the room with just the Power Cord. Net connection will be via usb Wifi or something like that. Does anyone know if that's possible with one of these shuttle boxes?
