    My 90W opus arrived around the first week of August, 2003, so I guess I ordered mid/late July.

    All this does is monitor your ignition line. When you turn the car on, it flips "switches" (relays) and tells the motherboard to start up. You'd still need a power supply. The positive line from...

    If you're using PC100 ram the processor is only running at 600MHz, I think. I've tried divx and get crappy frame rates. I may try upgrading to pc133. Don't know if it will help though.
