    Single Board Upgrade

    Has anyone done a single board upgrade themselves? Is it as easy as purchasing the PC and installing or is there some integration that needs to happen?

    Re: Single Board Upgrade

    It's not buy any old computer and run the machine. You have to have an ISA backplane to use the Acroloop motion cards. Now I think you can find a "single board computer" that plugs into the ISA backplane and then you can go from there. What processor and such you can upgrade to, I wouldn't know. You are still running software that needs DOS, so maybe early level Pentium processors might be as "advanced" as you can get. I know a few folks have done this on the group, might be able to find reference using the search function.
