My first thought is to run a 100 or 133 FSB-Mhz CPU (preferably .18 
micron technology) at 66 Mhz.

The AOpen MX3S (http://www.aopen.com/products/mb/mx3s.htm) has on-board
NIC, VGA and sound and a micro-ATX form factor.  I could order one for
you.  There are various other choices but without the NIC.

The slowest P-III I can get with 133 Mhz FSB is an 800 (6x multiplier)
which you should be able to run at half speed.

You'd probably have to find a used board if you stick with the P-II.
