Great news indeed. I have some old 233Mhz Geode systems with two 100mBit
ethernet and two USB1.1 ports. I used one of those as samba server (and 
mp3 player via usb soundcard) before swithing to my current
old-notebook-hidden-on-top-shelf setup.

How about a module option to force usage of the PID filter?
Should be easy to add if the code for enabling it on demand is aready 
there.
