    1988 Toyota Land Cruiser

    Just recieved parts to start of my project today.

    Already Had:
    10" Touch Screen Display
    Mini Keyboard and Mouse Combo
    12v and 5v DC-DC Power Supplies (Probably for testing only at this point)

    Just Recieved:
    AMD AthlonXP-M 2200+
    512MB Ram
    Slimline DVD
    20Gig 2.5" Laptop HD
    DVD adpator
    HD Adaptor


    The plan is to bench test for a while running XP Pro, and testing front ends until I can figure out how I want to mount everything. My goal is a glorified MP3 Player and DVD player for traveling, as well as integrating GPS later.

    One pic of the vehicle for now. More to come as I build

    I used to have an '87... loved it. Have fun with the install. What are your plans for location of the MB? In the console or under the dash?

    Still thinking on that one.
    I have though about creating a customer middle console for the install. Maybe even put in armrests (I hate the fact is has none). Right now, those are just plans in my head as I get the system, up and running.

    I bet you could fit a bunch of stuff under the seat as well

    Probably, It will not be a wheeler so I do not have to worry much about water getting in. So the floor is a viable option.

    Very excited to hopfully start on Monday, when my new MB arrives.

    Well everything came in last night and had the system up and running in about 45 minutes. Loaded XP Pro on, and started playing.

    It appears as though I have made a newbie mistake and did not match up my mobo and XP-M processor very well. This board does not allow me to modify the mulitplier, and it only allows me to change the FSB value to anything under 200 (using it's utility program). So the chip is running at 600Mhz (6X100) I can up it to 6x133 to get me around 798Mhz, but I would like to get it running in the 1Ghz area.

    After searching around (like I should have done before) it appears the BioStar boards have had a lot of success with the Mobile AMD chips so I am going to give that route a shot.

    Oh well, roam was not built in a day. So, I guess my Car PC will not be either.

    On the plus side. The adaptors for the Slimline DVD and 2.5" drive worked flawlessly. Everything recognized right off the bat, no issues that way at all.

    Rome, Roam. Potatoe, Pota... oh well I guess that does not work

    No custom case yet, it is in a salvaged case right now. I will get pics as soon as it is pic worth. Hopefully I will get it clocked and working thursday night.

    I am thinking of mounting under the driver or passenger seat on rack rails that will pull out for easy removal and install. Basically a rack shelf mounted to the seat legs that the case will mount too.
