No, but many people have done it. There's actually a company that manufactures them, just google it.

I've seen someone around here with it, and it's wicked awesome.

I just googled carputer and this is what I got.

I think it's not the same company of the one I saw, but just do a bit of googling, and I'm sure you'll come up with something. The one I saw had a touch screen, wi-fi, printer hookups......you name it.

As far as I know, it looks pretty much like a standard head unit. You will need to know which wires hook up to what, and so forth. If you're not about DIY's, just order it through a local car audio shop and spend the buck$$ to have it installed.

There are several ways to do this. Most of the car computers that are running XP run on a motherboard form factor called Mini-ITX. These can be bought at mini-itx.com if you want to build one. The site provides cases for both car and desktop use.

If you don't want to build one, or don't have the knowledge, there is one premade called a VoomPC that can be bought here: http://www.mini-box.com/VoomPC-Enclosure?category=87

Hope that helps.

Edit: Check this car pc builder out too: http://www.cartft.com/catalog/il/546
