    Hardware requirements

    Can someone tell me what kind of hardware will media car run on? Im looking to build a pc-104 computer that has only a 1GB disk-on-chip. What OS does it use (linux, embedded xp)?

    My plan is to for the pc-104 to run a small frontend software capable of mp3 playback. The data (music/video/etc) files would reside externally on an usb2, firewire, or ethernet drive.

    Is there another (smaller) software solution that might be better for my application?

    Thanks!

    Not sure you can run MediaCar on Enbbeded XP.. it does run on normal windows.. most front-ends you'll find are not all that big, but the skins can be pretty big (<20Mbs), 1Gb should be enough to install windows and a few front ends though.. I would tell you to try Road Runner (smaller than MediaCar with support to its skins) but then again I'm biased...

    PS: I do have reports that Road Runner works with XP Embbeded if that's what you want to use.
