Which EPIA MB model did you use? Did you have any problems with the
onboard sound?

I did try using a similar board ECS K7VMM+ but could not get the sound
working correctly.

Cheers...

I have booted both off flash and from the network on my Epia.  Should be
the exact same for any PXE-enabled BIOS.

Honestly after getting PXE going, I don't think CF is worth while.  Boot
time is real similar I didn't time the difference, but I think its real
negligable.

My EPIA does have a 60 watt fanless powersupply.  Still has a processor
fan though.  I was hoping to dump the processor fan though.  Maybe with
a mondo heat sink
