                Katnip - Could you give me some info on where your player is set up? I also have a Jeep Cherokee and am just in the planning stages of my first project. Thanks!

                  Hi CY,
                  My first idea was to mount it in the center console. It is just big enough to get in a micro or flex atx board and a hard drive, but I decided that it was just too tight, the power supply & dvd would not fit in there with everthing else so I moved on to Plan B.

                  I decided to use a "knuff box" from ikea, it is 13.25"w x 10.5"d x 6.25"h. I cut holes for the cd, floppy, & power supply to poke out and I will mount the board in the lid of the box. The box will live on the hump in the back seat and there will be enough play in the wiring so that I can have it in if the rear seat is folded down.

                  I purchased one of the $300 touch screens that you might have read about in the hardware section. I am not entirely committed to keeping it though. If it goes in the jeep it will probably be mounted on a jottodesk.

                  The after I get the pc & monitor figured out I will be installing 5" monitors in the visors, where the vanity mirrors are.

                  anyway, that's my story . If you have time take a look at . That's on the other side of a dsl connection though, so if it's not accessible just try it again later.

                  good luck!
