Why $5k? Any decent Linux machine should be able to outperform
a loaded HP, I'd think. Walmart is selling Linux-compatible boxes
without monitors or ethernet connections for $400 on up; that
should outperform an HP doing a lot of database work running CVS
on NFS. Disk space and CPU power are cheap nowadays.
