Dual processor Pentium 3 board.

A lot of "heavy duty" servers are usually mounted in racks along with switches and patch panels in cabinets like this



It is quite a specialist board, and most likely would not fit in your average ATX case. Worth $25 of anyones money though

Do you have the ram and cup for it, per chance?

This is designed as a server board for a largish network and I'll be honest, it is pretty useless as a home PC, simply because it is totally unexpandable. There is only one PCI slot. I personally wouldn't waste effort on it if you intend to use it in a non business environment

support PIII up to 1 gig processors - dual - hope the board comes with the manuals since the board settings are going to be all over the place depending on what flavor of processer and number you decide to use. this board is basically for a low volume server application, but if you're feeling adventurous go for it (but not without those manuals, you'll be blowing chips left and right if you power it up with the wrong settings)

puta has the right idea though
