    Redhat, oops, I forgot to format the laptop drive before I put it in the CarPC box. Wow, it booted to the desktop. Linux rocks.

    Jasonsp6,
    Tell you the truth I dont remember if it was a member on this board, but i stumbled upon it on google while i was researching my carpc.. Maybe you can find it if your willing to take the time to do the soldering.. The website said it worked fine it was just a PITA to match all 40pins especially since there were 5 cat5 cables.

    I saw that site too. The kid had a truck and made it out of cat5 cable.

    What a waste of time. Hahha

    Many many ways..

    But....

    Can they boot of CD-ROm and install XP? I use my DVD-ROM to boot and install my OS. Many Firewire and USB 2.0 requirenewer motherboards.

    I'm running a INtel 815 chipset with a PIII 1Ghz Chip with 512MB ram. My mobo don't have firewire or USB 2.0, well atleast my car doesn't need it yet. Soon though. When I upgrade to a P4.

    that's soo mine. BACKOFF!

    I use a VST technologies (bought by smartdisk?) firewire (powerd by it too) CD-R/RW slim drive. When I want to instrall an OS, I plug in an ide drive... but I don't forsee doing this in a long time, as I have ghost images on a VST firewire/usb laptop drive thingy, and can load them in 10 minutes that way.

    I like not having to do anything special to my hardware when I need to reinstall or do anything. Makes it more self sufficient.

    Version 2.0 is always better!!!
