I'm using a older C3 800 miniITX without any problem. AFAIK even the latest miniITX has the "VIA Rhine" chipset for ethernet. Also the PLE266 should work, but of course you cannot use the mpeg2 decoder. Don't know any OS which could make use of it.
many thanx - my 10 year old system which I just set up as gateway has expired and I figured that a C3 800 would be a relatively inexpensive replacement.
Just curious - what driver does your system say it uses for the C3 800 miniITX's NIC?
