Question: how are you guys thinking about powerUP/shutDOWN with the car?
the unit goes ON when powered, you can shut it down (but fans keep ON) but how to automate within the car?
about the net card... It is plugged firmly, but my 24 port switch does not read it. I tough it might be the connector's leds but it seams not to pick up.
I notice the lights are flashing when the PCMCIA cards are initialised at bootup, but then no network activity.
I just had the most brilliant idea: why not trying the machine's PCMCIA net card into my lappy??? lol
putting the HDD into another puter would not work for configuration, just for file copying. I might simply copy the CAB files from 98se and be OK, tough.
the best would be network activity. Do we have another net card onboard? It seams to be like 3/4 net cards in the hardware setup... I haven,t found another connector so far, but haven't dismantled it yet.
