This is not directly an EPICS issue, but I am hoping someone in the
EPICS community can help me (or knows someone who can help).

At DLS, we are looking for status display monitors to be placed around
the site. In the past these would have been video fed, but I believe all
we have placed at the status display points are Cat6 network sockets,
and we are looking at economical ways of generating status displays.

I have looked at the panel PC's available, but they seem quite expensive
and I suspect that a small embedded PC + a monitor may be cheaper. The
system must boot linux without a disk, be an x86 architecture and have a
graphics card and Ethernet socket.

If anyone has any experience with this and has any suggestions, or can
propose any alternative architectures that might work, please contact me
with ideas off-line.

Cheers,
