check out the openbrick and similar small-form-factor systems.  i'm
happy to use the one here to work on emacs, guile, etc., even though
it's only 300MHz.  it is more silent than the ambiant noise and much
more silent than the dude twiddling the guitar waiting for the compile
to finish...

otherwise, if you have an IDE drive try "hdparam -S 1 /dev/hda".
