Note that that box only has one ethernet port, though it is gigabit.
However, you could emulate manu different devices by getting a switch that
supports 802.1q VLAN tagging, and turn that one port into 8, 16, or more
effective ports.  ;-)

The Soekris boxes work pretty well for this application, and some of those
boxes have 3 ethernet ports and 1 or 2 MiniPCI or PCMCIA slots.
