No, you cannot plug anything into it - Its all onboard. Nice box though.
Installation is a little bit difficullt, but it is possible. You have to
operate them headless, and serial port doesn't really work either. If
somebody is interested, I could wip up a little howto how to install these
boxen. I have installed NetBSD on one here and it works a treat.

They have about the CPU power of a 486/66 or so, but the I/O bandwidth is
better. I used mine as NFS server for a 10 MBit LAN and it could fill up
the line :)
