Need a cheep solution

I need to go from a gige interface with Jumbo frames to an ATM OC3 interface.
If I did this with a router it could cost abt 50-100K but I suspect
that I could do this with cheep 1GHz pc with a gige interface and a
ATMO C3 interface. For only a few K. Has any tryed this stunt before?
Does any think it has a chance of working, in this case working means
that it can sustain about 15Mbytes/sec without dropping packets do
to the mismatch in speed between a gige and ATM OC3. This only means
that linux may have to buffer about 300 4096K packets until the enough
packets are in the packet for one round trip time.
