I can only second Dan's suggestion, and add that I made good experience
with the Alix boards (~100€):
they run a couple of Linux distros fine; I use them self for Firewalls,
f.e. pfSense, Ipcop, Ipfire, and those all make use of a minimal Linux
OS + Apache httpd, and sure I use curl on these too :-)
you can directly connect a 2.5" HD, or use a CF card (which I use in
most cases) for the OS; power consumption is ~3.8W (AMD Geode processor).
