Sorry for mixing you up.

The Wireless N card question was for Media Director.. As I still don't understand how diskless boot works, I was wondering if my computer would recognize my Wireless N Card or USB N adapter without loading the OS..

*Edit* Also, Do I really need Cat5? Or can I use my wireless router?

Eh sorry about that ^^. I was also wanting to know if this would work as a media director.

It's has a 1Ghz processor (Or maybe a 1.3 Ghz Processor.. What would be the minimum for good viewing and no lag?), S3 Graphics UniChrome Pro IGP (I saw that Fiire used a Unichrome video card and I was wondering if this one could alpha blend), Video out, 1  GB Ram and 1 PCI slot (Possibly for a video card or a wireless card).

That brings me to my next question, in order to connect to the core, does the computer have to be connected with wires (computer - ethernet - modem - etc) or can I use a USB wireless N adapter or a PCI card?

Thanks a bunch,

From what I've read, All you can do on Windows is control the remote. Nothing else =/..

I've been reading the forums for the past week and Linux MCE has seriously interested me and I've decided to start building LinuxMCE core with 4 or so thin clients.

Quick Questions:

Can this do Skype?
Can you use a Bluetooth headset for when answering calls?
How do diskless thin clients work (I've been wanting to do something like this for a while and I can't figure it out!)
How should my set up be? (I want a cheap set-up but I also want it to do it flawlessly. I also have a ton of media. Should I put it all on the Hard drive of the core or should I use NAS?)
Can two or more thin clients access the core without interfering with each other? (i.e. one thin client is watching a recorded tv show another is watching a DVD from the Jukebox)
and One of the most important question is, can I access this through the internet (A la Slingbox or so?) If so I have a great project in mind :).

Thanks for reading and responding  :),
