[lug] Similar to Rasberry Pi?

This made my day! I was looking at the Rasberry Pi's official web page. Seems it is out of date...on theirs it is only a single port. I do require that both USB ports are unable to see each other without software to bridge them.

The model B has 2 USB Ports. Of course
      they've added more than that so it runs a bit more.  Here's an


      You might be able to get it for less elsewhere but I didn't look
      :)  $50 from them.

      I've been toying around with all the fun things one could with the
      Rasberry Pi SBC. It's astonishing how useful this little,
      inexpensive device could be. However, what I was thinking of doing
      requires two separate USB ports (not a hub), and Rasberry Pi has
      only one. I don't even need all of the features of Rasberry Pi, I
      could live without video display (though one output which works
      with a computer monitor would be nice). I don't need
      networking...although it would be nice. The RTC would be good, but
      Rasberry Pi does allow adding this through the GPIO pins. Looks
      like Rasberry Pi can use a 2.6 kernel, which I would need. Audio
      would be very useful to tinker with, but not mandatory for what
      I'm thinking of...nice to have, but not mandatory. So...Rasberry
      Pi has everything except that second pesky USB port.

      I went looking for similar single board computers, and found
      several which might work. Except these are from manufacturers
      uninterested in publishing a price, or the price is in euros or
      pounds. Those that do have a price are at minimum more than $200
      beyond the price of Rasberry Pi, even when they lack features to
      compete with Rasberry Pi. More ram would be nice compared to
      Rasberry Pi, but not really needed, and certainly not worth $200

      So...is there a specific SBC to Rasberry Pi which someone here has
      worked with, having two separate USB ports...maybe even some audio
      or networking...and running a 2.6 kernel...in the $100 range? If
      not, what are the SBCs people here have used which are closest to
      Rasberry Pi and having the 2.6 kernel and dual USB ports?
