Basically, I am looking to use either a via EPIA 533mhz fanless motherboard, or maybe even something more depending on how my money goes later this year.
I want to make a "carputer"(computer in the car), and have all of the details, for the most part that I need. I will want a wireless network card, a pcmia wireless high speed modem, usb slot load slim line dvd drive, and a small lcd screen as well as functional surround sound.
I origonally planned to use windows 98 or 2000, but after playing with a couple of versions of linux (mandrake, redhat 9, suse, and a few "live" cd's) I decided this would be a good way to go. Also I want to use a lower powered version. A ram hogger would be fine. It takes ddr ram
I want a mp3 player, dvd player and other then that, just basic stuff like internet browsing. is there already a linux distro that would be suited for my use?
I am not really a newbie to computers, but I am alot newer to linux. My experiance with it has been purely recreational. Any pointer would be greatly appreciated.
I would rather have a gui, but I wouldnt mind a text based version either. I miss dos
