Dunno, never tried. I removed the carputer from my Explorer about 6 months ago after I got angry with PC Chips. They were supposed to release a TOS-LINK adapter for my board and never did. I guess I could try it at home and see if it works. I'm mostly interested in weather or not I could do Divx playback with an Eden.
I can play Divx on my VIA EPIA C3-800 setup using Linux with no noticable dropped frames. I've been using Xine for Divx and Ogle for DVD's Mplayer is a resource hog.
In general, you can strip down Linux alot easier than you can Windoze (bloat ware) so yes you can likely get by with less powerful hardware to do the same thing. I know people who are using K6-550's to decode divx and dvd's with success.

This might sound stupid but where can I get a copy of the Divx Codec that will install on linux, the copy I was using in windows installs via an ini file but linux doesn't like that not really surprised.
And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows? www.mp3mini.co.uk (Does what it says on the URL) www.openclassic.co.uk (The new car, with zero rust!) www.rob-web.co.uk (My other site)
Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

You don't need to download it seperately as xine and mplayer use ffmpeg (if I remember correctly) to decode divx and this is included with them.
