    no, i am running from my laptop at the moment so i can get all the software installed on my actual carputer. im not exactly sure where to mount it yet so we'll see =) i might just stuff it behind the screen but i wont have access to my dvd drive unless i turn it sideways and make a hole in dash for it from passenger's side

    I've been wondering the same thing (about the DVD drive) on an install I want to do. I suppose I could remote mount the drive in the glovebox or center console somehow..

    I'm thinking about installing mine behind the front seat on the shelf (I have a '99 - I believe the ECU might be in that spot for your '96). I then would position the CD/DVD player against the back bulkhead but close to the center console. Won't be the easiest thing to reach while driving. But, I don't plan to use it like a DVD player in the car (most stuff will be on MP3s). But, use it rarely (and at stop lights, if driving).
