I have a via MII-10000 motherboard in a mini-itx case with a 12VDC  
Westinghouse 15 inch LCD in the car running Fedora FC4 and Xastir.
The arrangement seems to work well, but I am having trouble figuring out how  
to power the system when the car is not running. I currently charge a 12V  
marine deep cycle battery when the car is running and use it to power the  
system. My calculations suggest I should be able to run for about 36 hours but  
I get nowhere near that. I currently suspect I may have a bad batery.
