banshee35: Thanks for pointing out the "lot 5" thing. I interpreted this as meaning something like "batch number 5". The seller has a few other auctions where he explicitly states "lot of 20" ("of" being the key word) in both in the auction title and description. This is probably what he means for the PCM-5860 auction. However, the wording is ambiguous enough that I would ask the seller to verify the meaning before bidding. I've been burned by wording like this before.
If the auction is for 5 machines, then it is a great deal. I have a bunch of the PCM-5862's (similar board with on-board audio). I've worked out a few hacks for the machine like voltage mods to run the lower voltage K6 CPU's and custom video BIOS's.
The motherboard would make a great car computer/MP3 player as well as having many other uses.
BTW, I have spare LCD panels that I've made work with my 5862's. These should also work with the 5860's. Contact me a smoke_liberator at yahoo dot com if you want more info about these.
Electronics run on smoke, if you let the smoke out they won't work
