    General Info:
    It is in the car now and works. I have had in for about 6 months. It is mounted in the trunk of the car. I have it setup that you push one rocker to turn on the LCD and a push button and the PC comes on. I will fill in the rest of the above info later.

    To Do:
    Right now the power inverter is plugged in the cig lighter. I am going to hard wire it next month.

    Install the 2nd DVD player. Right now there is only 1 and it is in the trunk. I have a USB DVD player http://www.addonics.com/products/ext...pocket_dvd.asp and I just need to install it. The rest of the parts are on the way. Anybody know of any DVD software that works with 2 DVD's?

    All the machines on my network are named after the Simpsons. My desktop is Bart, Laptop Maggie, server Homer, wifes machine is lisa. Then I started to think about who liked music and drove. Otto the school bus driver!
