Which is precisely what I'm doing. I have an older Shuttle SS40G that I
picked up on eBay for less than $200. I had to install a larger hard disk
(It serves as both a music and file server), but other than that, it's
running "as is." OS is now Fedora 3 and it's accessed via RealVNC. It's not
fanless but it does satisfy all your other requirements. And it's been
sitting on a shelf in my office continuously since the day I got my first
Slimp3.
