I just have some real basic questions about the webplayer.
Can the MiniPCI slot be converted into a PCI slot with a converter i've seen, plus adding a very short PCI right angle adapter to get the slot back on the right angle? This seems to be a bit taller than the case, but it looks to me as possilble without the case or a modified one.
Is the Compact Flash Slot useable once I solder a socket on? This could be useful to suplant the DiskOnChip2000. The idea there would to have a machine that can turboboot into an OS such as QNX or Embeded Linux.
Is the USB Supported under QNX and or Linux? or do you have to use Windows like most of the Webplayer owners seem to use. Oh Windows is fine, but I'd rather have a smaller OS footprint so I can do real work in the Flash. (Of course I'd have more with a bigger DOC or Compact Flash if that works)
How much is a replacement 48mb DOC2k and where can I purchase the range of these chips in qty 1?
Last question: Has anyone put external IDE devices on a Webplayer? This would invlove putting a socket on the outside of the case so you could plug and unplug the external ribbon cable (of course trying to keep the 18" limit in check.)
Thank you for any help you may provide.
