You can get a suitable machine for under $200 at http://www.soekris.com/.
Their power requirements are very small... I ran one off a battery and two 5
watt solar panels for about three weeks before I needed to use the panels
elsewhere and shut it down.  You will need a compactflash card, but a 32 meg
card should do and they're cheap.

I've used one-port serial terminal servers that might do the job, but
they're typically twice that price.

That is exactly my problem :)

I can buy a low power, small form factor linux machine for about $300 but
I was hoping I wouldnt have to spend that much.

I have the perl and C code to do the serial to text/server processing
already...looks like I'm stuck with a linux box.
