    You can also get almost any Linux distro at Linuxiso.org

    Peace,

    i got the test computer running linux DSL and i just plugged my LCD into it, and it seems to work.... well, it has the default logo and backlight on so i am guessing that it is somehow possible to work.... i just dont know how, or what program to use

    Sorry, can't help ya there. you'll have better luck if you boot it up with the LCD plugged in, though.

    no, no it is working, but LCD's will only display that untill you use a program, such as LCDC to tell it to display something else, such as a spectrum analiser, text, whatever, or mabey..... is there a better way to do this?


    i mean i dont HAVE to put the LCD in the mix do i?... i can omitt the LCD if you think you have a better idea on how to do it?, although my budget doesnt extend as far as to a lilliput touch screen, but.... is there another way of doing this? as far as control goes

    Ah. check the DSL forums. They might have something rigged up to make it useful.

    i just had a thought, i have around $500 aud, is there a good place where i can get a touch screen?, the PC is going to be in the boot, so i might need one with a looong cord

    i was looking at this one....... ebay
    what do you guys think?
