WTB: 5.25" LCD for PC

    I'm looking for a device that will fit in a 5.25" drive bay of a PC. It
    should have an LCD display, and a few buttons.

    The goal of this is to allow network configuration of the PC through the
    device. The PC will be running a custom distribution of linux.

    If you have any pointers, send 'em my way. I know that I've seen this sort
    of thing before, but don't remember where.

  2. I don't know any ready-made product, however it shouldn't be too difficult
    to build one using a serial-mode LCD connected to one of the serial ports of
    the PC. Some of them have push-button inpupts too. Then it is "just" a
    matter of packaging...

    Maxtrix Orbital has them: 2x16 LCD + arrow keys, F1, F2 and Enter key.
    Serial connection or USB.

  4. Hi,

    Try Google and look for "lcd4linux" : you'll find
    some good ideas about those kind of devices.
