For small cases and motherboards, I recommend shuttle, as they have really good
stuff in general. they have boards with onboard ethernet (doesn't everyone
these days) and a PCI slot, however, fitting 4 hard drives in any small case is
going to be very tricky at best.
If you really don't have the room for a full tower, you might have to make do
with 1 or 2 internal hard drives, and then maybe 1 or 2 external (usb or
firewire) hard drives. As an aside, how much space do you need? The newest
harddrives are 750 gigs.
