Not sure what unplugged cable you mean - there should be a unplugged 
network cable, since I'm presently making use of the extra-long blue one 
to connect to the network.
I've also run a USB extension out the back, so that we can more easily 
plug in additional devices/storage

The system is presently has fairly limited storage, so we can fill that 
drive up (think it's a 40GB IDE) & load more.
The mobo should have 1 IDE bus free and a number of SATA ports & a 
boat-load of USB's.

The next step in the system's development is:
* mounting the power button & connectors
* mounting some semi-decent PC-preakers to it (probably in the top)
* getting those front-buttons to control the player/interface - haven't 
figured that one out yet
