I think trying to cut down an ATX board to notebook size would be harder
(or at least as hard) as designing your own board.  In fact, this might
not be too hard (if you have some good EE guys) and a good deal of
knowledge.  Be manage to make a mobo so...  I think using the IBM stuff as
a referance and doing a new board might be easier.  But I'm no EE guy
