Ideas for a low powered home server running Linux...

I'm not going to be doing much with this. I already have a NAS so this won't be a file server. I just want it to do a few things such as XBMC, OpenVPN server, Squeezebox server, etc. It's going to be on 24/7, and I don't want it to use much power. Since it is isn't going to be doing too much, I don't want too spend much. I tried the Raspberry Pi, but it doesn't have enough power. It can run one of these applications perfectly, but it can't run much more at the same time. Same with an old PogoPlug. I was thinking about one of these: Beaglebone Black? CubieTruck? An old Dell Mini 9? If anyone has any ideas or can tell me about their low powered/low cost server, I'd appreciate it.

How can I speed up a slow VPN connection?

I've set up an OpenVPN VPN on an overseas server as a way of getting around the Great Firewall of China. It's working, but is considerably slower than paid services like Witopia. I'm a total n00b when it comes to this sort of thing and am wondering if the speed issues are a result of the configuration, or if it's just the way things are. [more inside]

How do I disable DHCP from doing DNS updates in Windows?

My VPN in leaking DNS requests. I am clearing out DNS entries on non-VPN interfaces using netsh, but Windows keeps using DHCP to automatically refill the DNS information. Microsoft lists a way to do it in Windows 2k/2k3, but that registry location doesn't exist on any other Windows OS. I need to do this for XP and Vista also. How can I automatically disable DHCP from doing DNS updates using programming (not telling users to do control panel navigation)?
