You can get a two slot chassis for a mini-ITX or flex-ATX board. The Travla 
C137 can take a 2-slot riser, though you are limited to using a 2.5" HDD. I 
used one of these chassis' for my primary router, with two 3Com 3C905TX NIC's 
installed. Although present and working, I don't use the onboard NIC; though 
the problems I had may have been with the cable modem, not the NIC.

Caseoutlet sells them, but you can get more info on them from Travla. (http://

Keep in mind, the onboard NIC is there, so all you really need is one 
additional PCI NIC.
