Another thought occurs... what about putting an SBC in the PCI slot?
I guess the first issue would be making sure there's only one PCI bus 
arbiter.  In the case of the SBC, is that usually on the backplane or 
the SBC motherboard?

It would be real slick to pop the SBC into a motherboard with bad code 
in the soldered in flash chip, and re-flash it.
