Depends on what you want to do. The Indy is a nice workstation we
support. The SNI RM200 is more PC-like. But if you are more out
for building some special hardware, you probably want to go for an
evaluation board. I'm hacking on a P4032; several other people have
done more or less complete ports to other eval boards for example
from IDT. If price is influences you choice most, then try to get
something like a second hand Magnum 4000 or Olivetti M700.
