What is a Shuttle PC exactly?  Is this a brand name or some sort of form
factor?  I was looking on the web but couldn't only find pictures of the
pc and not an explanation of what they are.  At any rate the pics make
it look like the MiniQ pc that one of the guys has at work.  He runs
Mandrake on it quite fine.  I think he also had freeBSD on it.
