At work we have some specialized ISA boards, so I've been looking at ways
to use them on current hardware:

The industrial control people developed the "PICMG" <
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PICMG> standard for passive backplanes to
support legacy cards in current systems: <
http://www.picmg.org/pdf/pcishort.pdf>,<
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backplane>.    Linux people have been involved
in developing the standards.  . There are product listing on the PICMG site
and you can find offers on ebay (search for PICMG SBC ISA).  There are
PICMG
SBCs with Atom and core2 processors.

Some "simpler" approaches:

ISA to USB (claims to support linux):

ISA to PCI bridge cards (require firmware programming):
