Excuse me for my little knowledge in pc104.
What is the easiest way to communicate between a pc104 and a ordinary
pc, is it possible by pci slot ?
In order to do that do I need the pc104+ ?

Hello - I'm venturing into a PC104 project and have few questions to
start off. I have no experience with PC104 whatsoever.
The goal is for a PC104 module to talk to another board with an FPGA on
it. Questions are:
1. Can I use any version of Linux on the PC104 ?
2. To save time, I hope t...

I am a PC104 newbie.
I am trying to boot a PC104 using a Compactflash flash memory card. To do
so, I first copied system files onto it (from a Windows98 machine). I then
used the flash card to boot the PC104, but encountered "Disk I/O error".

I use a CPLD to generate interrupt in a PC104 system. It work's fine.
The question is:
is correct connect CPLD output diretly to PC104 IRQ input (i don't need
interrupt sharing)? Or i need other hardware (pull-up resistor or other) ?
Thank's in advance

Any recommendations for a PC104 plus SBC with good processing speed
and withstand high temperature? I am worried about the PCI connectors.
In some of the boards the OCI connectors become loose and the daughter
boards come out some days.

I can't read IO ports from the ISA bus,

using PC104 with 16bit configuration. What size is an address? IE. if
i write 0xABCD to address 0x1234, did I infact write AB to 0x1234 and

I think this is how ISA handles IO writes, but im not sure. So when I
write 16 bits to an odd address I actualy get 2 writes to teh bus?
