One of my current NTP servers is running on a Alix 1D motherboard from
PC Engines. Software is FreeBSD 7.4 (nanoBSD).

It's a NTP pool server and it has been serving around 30-40 packets
per second of NTP traffic during the last days.

It consumes around 5W of power, boots of a Compact Flash and runs
completely in memory.

I have two of these units: one with a Garmin 18 LVC and another with a
Motorola Oncore UT+.

Hope this helps.
