We use a home-built kit called the thermalcube 
(http://ssli.ee.washington.edu/people/nomad/thermalcube.html).  Each one 
costs about $10 to build and takes ~30 minutes if you want to do all the 
sleeve work and such.

Adapters for an RS-232 port cost $10-$15.  You only need one adapter.

Software is DigiTemp (mentioned on the thermalcube page), some short 
shell scripts and nagios.
