Well if you want all the bits you listed the machine is not going to be that quiet ;) Anywho Mini-ITX.com is a very good site with pages of other people projects and product specs.
Im afraid theres many versions of motherboards to choose from. If you want the maximum speed but no CPU fan, then the ME6000. But if you want 1GHz+ its cpu fans all round im afraid. As for wireless access, depends whether you using PCI cards, USB sticks or a PCcard (from a laptop) which then the MIIE6000 has a cardbus and compact flash slot.
Just as a word of caution some of the later boards need a certain type of RAM.
Essentially most of the boards have similar features:
Two IDE channels (so four devices)
At least one LAN socket
Usually four USB sockets (2 from header on MB)
1 Parallel port, 1 serial port
2 firewire from header pins
keyboard/mouse PS/2 sockets
This is much as I can suggest really.
Its up to you for which motheboard will suit your requirements, I would suggest taking some time over it! and reading as many other peoples projects as possible if this is your first build!
Hoipe this helps! :S
