At the very same second as I saw the Lunch box at Gentoo store, I wanted to use one of those as a computer case. A mATX motherboard is only 7x7" large? (17,64cm x 17,64cm). Anyways, It would be rather cool, and easy to carry to a lan and such.

I think they're called mITX. mATX is a little bigger.

Getting the video drivers to work for the Epia M under Gentoo is difficult at best. Check the Via linux forum (http://forums.viaarena.com) for tales of horror about it. Some people have gotten the old drivers to work, but it's a hassle and a half. I've yet to see a report of someone getting the video drivers for the M to work on Gentoo.
The older boards have a different graphics chip which has better support.

MOD EDIT: Split the prophylactics chat from the serious project, to here: Gentoo Prophylactics
