A quick search turned up Lulu (http://www.lulu.com/).

>From the Lulu site:
"Publish and sell easily within minutes.
No set-up fees. No minimum order.

Each product is printed as it is ordered.
No excess inventory."

Looks like they offer hardcover and paperback and are fine with
"open-source" books.
