I have flex-ATX motherboard which uses Via C3 Samuel cpu and Via CLE266
chipset.  Since I only do 2D stuffs, Xorg's "via" driver seems to be
okey here.

I wich they come up with portable (ie. transportable from desk-to-desk)
package, using commodity desktop components.  The best one can do is to
mount LCD montior to the side of tower case.  If anyone has idea on
how to make it attractive, let me know.
