Do you really need an attached video screen? You could run the display on another PC.
Remember, this Soekris is only a 266 mhz, a window manager is a lot of over head.
Of course if you don't need a window manager, you can still open xterm windows
thought this set up. And then there is SSH, which maybe better for you data
Also, think USB to serial adapter.
I have been running my 4801 for almost three years. Solid, pricey but solid.

Thanks for your time.
