"Me too"... I use a 600MHz fanless version which is completely silent.  It is 
also capable to do 5.1 sound and good anamorphic 16:9 TV out at 800x600.  
600MHz is fast enough to do all the common codecs in realtime.  The board is 
really stable.  A 600MHz C3 does not compete with a 2GHz celeron or whatever 
the entry level is now, but for the tasks I need it for (video server, mail, 
and rsync backup) it is fine.  And *silent* :-)

This has been resolved in later kernels, and arjan has made a mini iso to 
allow installs:
