I'm not sure what's your objection to x86 servers, but I use an Asus
WL700ge for a somewhat similar circumstance. It's very low-power, but
is perfectly adequate for serving files over a DSL line. It's got
a MIPS cpu, 64MB RAM, runs OpenWRT, and I put a 1TB drive in it (via
a small PATA->SATA bridge since the machine only has PATA but large
disks only come in SATA).
