Hey! Do you have a camera in my house or something?

Do you know how hard it is to get the videobox software to run on a
VIA EPIA board with (unfortunately, WinXP)? Not to mention the whole
a/v
syncing issue...

Ya, I scrapped the idea of a EPIA board awhile ago. I just can't bring
myself to hack up the Shuttle XPC box either, with just the hopes of
squeezing it into my other case. Plus, all the heat issues... it'd be
an endeavor.

I have an older Advantech biscuit board, but it's only supports
Pentium 1. I wouldn't imagine the Windows client would run to well...
any linux gurus out there have experience with the SB software on a
barebones linux install on a slooooow PC such as this? If't it'd work
well, I'd do it.
