As others have said, likely the underside. Knowing VIA, you'll have a SODIMM and Mini--PCI down there.

why not fit one with a LCD screen in your rigs 5" bays

What ethernet does it support? 1Gb? If it does follow my idea above with an internally fitted network storage box hooked up to the main rig and the pico itx

Home made vista-esque sideshow but better!

Mod a bunch into the rear expansion slot plates and put one in each unused expansion slot - or maybe gut a few old CD-ROMs and put complete systems (including laptop or flash drives) in each 5 1/4" bay

Or better yet, skip the case and just mount the whole thing on the back of an LCD or LCD stand.

You can see on the larger pictures:

<a href="http://www.linuxdevices.com/files/misc/via_epiapx_1.jpg">larger pic</a>

there is something on the underside of the board.

might have to look at running one of these of a CF to IDE adapter if possible for a very small solid state video player.
