Here are some shots of the hardware and descriptions of functionality
linksys Wireless b/g usb
Holux GPS receiver also mounted on the rear deck
The computer itself is mounted in a case i constructed out of mdf, the case is mounted on the rear seat and can flip up into the trunk. All of the wiring to the front of the car goes through the center console and is hidden. All of my USB hubs are powered and there are a 1.1 and 2.0 hub both front and back. A opus 150 provides power to a Biostar with a Athlon 2400 M 35 watt, I have a 120 gig seagate also mounted in the case.
The case is my least favorite part of the install, thus it is the most likely to get ripped apart and replaced when i find some spare time.
Here is a shot of the DVD player mounting location. it is cut into what used ot be a compartment with a flip up door. I removed the door and dremmeled the dvd drive (slim slotload) into place.
One of the cooler parts of the install is my integration with my cell phone. It is a sony ericsson s710a. I can control different programs on my computer with the cell phone using different profiles to change what the cell phones buttons send to the HID interface. Here is a shot of the centrafuse one I created.
The phone also connects the computer to the internet through BT while i am on the road. This is a shot of the phone connecting.
I have a ELM OBD II board in the dash.
Here is an outside shot of the XM, gps and wireless antennas, I tried to keep the profile to a minimum.
Here is a shot of my 4 channel amp and xm box in the trunk, also my distribution blocks.

And here is a shot of the second version of my shell software running on my screen, check it out in my sig.
