this is my first serious attempt on making a car PC, all my other ones had a monitor on the passenger seat and a trackball mouse taped to the console....
i just bought an 87 celica and have started modding the outside of that, the inside in near new, and i dont want to distroy that so i wanna do things properly
here is the setup, sorry about the crappy web page and picture size, just save as and zoom in Phobos's carputer page , and once again, sorry about the crap page (its pretty bad)
this it my setup, well the parts i have available, and im on a limited budget
my question, is aimed purely at software.....
1, what opperating system should i use, keeping in mind i need large disk support (80GB) and USB 2.0 for my LCD display
2, is there anything i have missed in the picture that you can see?
3, what is the best way to keep the dard drive safe, i was thinking of buying a HDD cooler with anti-shock then wrapping that in soft foam, with breather holes
4, any improvements or genral advice, pointers?
