BTW, EPIA-M also supports 1394 and USB2. Instead of using built-in ethernet, ether1394 can be used as network connections. I have tried ether1394 couple years ago and the performance is quite disappointed. Have anyone tried that recently?
Yes, the builtin Firewire is interesting. Again, as I'm trying to keep costs down I have found D-link Firewire cards for 12 UKP. I've ordered four of them. One of the other ideas I had was to link a cluster up with Firewire, and see how it performs.
These cards have three ports (haven't arrived yet). Does anyone have good pointers to Firewire/1394 resources please?
