My friend and I are trying to do this with a old clamshell iBook. My dad has a bunch of them at his lab that they don't need anymore, so if I screw up on one of them, it doesn't cost anyone anything. I have a few questions before I start. 1. Is there anyway to solder a DVI connector to the end of the cable of the iBook's LCD? 2. If I can't do #1, what would be the best way to watch DVDs on it? I could rip it and copy it to the internal or a firewire hard drive (this would take a loooong time) or network it to my PowerBook through the ethernet with a router. I don't have a crossover cable. Also, I've heard that you can use firewire to create a network between 2 computers. Would this work? I will post pictures of everything if all goes well.
