I've got a PSU(0lder 20pin)a SATA2 HD and some crappy old IDE DVD drive, do I need anything else?

You may want to consider that PICO psu ...

PICOPSU-120 with Power Kit Includes Pico PSU 120W DC-DC ATX PSU & AC-DC Switching Power Adapter - DirectCanada

I use this in two mini-itx systems.

I could probably MacGyver something like that up if needed, but I'll probably jam this in an un-used mini-tower I have so the old ATX supply should be fine.

What OS will you be using, there was some issues using linux and the onboard nic.

If you want a small setup, you could just install the mobo on the back of a LCD monitor ... works great

I'll probably try Ubuntu for starters(forgive my ignorance if I can't use this as a server - I used it once for an HTPC, and that's it), if the NIC won't work under that, no doubt I can get a PCI 10/100 card for nothing that will work.
