Check out http://www.dashpc.com/ for ideas, parts sources, etc. As
others have noted, staying as far away from VB is the way to go.
However, staying away from anything with the microsoft logo is *also*
the way to go (IMO; no religous flamewars, thanks =) ). dashpc.com has
pretty much all the info you're going to need to install a PC into a
car, including power and so forth.
