    Question Laptop screen with standard PC

    I have around eight Toshiba T2110CS laptops and I want to somehow use one the screens with my main car computer.

    Right now I plan on having one of them up front and use a program like PC Anywhere to control the Shuttle in the trunk. It should be good for things that the Palm cant do very well (like playlist editing and ripping CDs). Problem is this is way to slow to play DVDs on.

    To solve the DVD playback issue I would like to take one of the screens off the Toshiba’s and use it with the computer in the trunk. A Toshiba T2110CS is only worth $25 on E-Bay and thus a heck of a lot cheaper then buying a 640x480 LCD.

    Ok, so here are my questions: Has any one done any thing like this before? What would I need to do this? Were can I find the stuff to do it with?
    Comp. Specs:Shuttle SS40G, Athlon XP 1700+, 256MB DDR, 40GB HD, Belkin Desktop 802.11b card (good range), SB 128 sound (onboard is a bit noisy), DVD ROM
    Toshiba 100CS laptop, P75 40mb ram, 550MB HD, Megahertz LAN/modem PC card, modified to run off 12VDC

    Other stuff:Generic USB hub & USB to serial adapters, BS2SX power control system w/battery buffer, Jazz 300W Inverter, FM Modulator, Palm Vx, & GPS

    Status: 80% complete (Almost done with the controle boxes)

    I think you would need a controller and inverter.
