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 to use the PC104 in 8-bit mode. Does anyone see a problem with this approach ? 3. Does anyone hav...

Hi, 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". Could someone let me know what could be wrong? Thanks, Niranjan

I have a project that I will be doing on a PC104 system. Before I call the dozens of vendors who don't give pricing info online, I would like to ask whether anyone else has selected PC104 systems lately, and if so what they found. REQUIREMENTS: Very low performance 386 or 486. A 16Mhz 386SX would be overkill. Runs MS-DOS. 1MB memory. Very, very cheap. The cheaper the better...
