    No, because all the hardware will be different. All you have to do is plug in a hard drive, any hard drive, into your Car PC and set up the system. Install all your drivers, 3rd party-software, frontend, etc. until it works exactly like you want it to. Then initialize the CF card for booting into XP and copy it to the CF card.

      can you explane this a little bit more in depth? Can I copy from the hard drive to cf card if Im booted up in windows on the hard drive? THis is the part Im have trouble with. Copying it to the cf and getting it to work.

      Thanks for the help.

        Unfortunately, you can't copy files from a currently running Windows installation so you need to either use a boot disk or take both drives into another PC and copy them from there.

          a dos boot disk and xcopy will work ok? Sorry for the dumb questions. I've just had a lot of problems and am looking for the best way to do all of this.

          Thanks.

            Yeah, if you can find xcopy from WinME which supports copying hidden files you're set. If not, just use a knoppix boot CD and use that.
