There are a lot of things that can be done with UML, but more can be done with said low end boxen. I personally have at present more than a dozen unallocated P-II 233 MHz 64 MB RAM systems (read GREAT routers!) and an 8 port KVM switch box with cables that I'd be more than willing to hook up to some boxen to work with.
