Actually, AS2000 == demi-sable.

It's basically a re-packaged sable.  Some of the parts that were on an
expansion board on the sable are now on the mainboard in the demi-sable.
It has less slots for memory and cpu upgrades, and less capable power
supplies, and a somewhat smaller enclosure.  The idea was to reduce
cost but I wonder if they ever sold enough of them to recoup the 
engineering dollars.
