    hello everyone,

    i know this question has been asked before but the threads i found seemed out-dated so i figured id ask again.

    i am a soldier in iraq and i enjoy playing games in my little bit of free time i get. im thinking about getting a playstation 2 sent in the mail to me so i can enjoy some games to eat some time away, but i would rather not screw with a tv for various traveling reasons. i just bought a P305-8910 Toshiba laptop with an ExpressCard 54 (ATSC/Analog Hybrid TV Tuner) card. this is a HDTV Tuner. I have an RF adapter cable and Composite video/audio with S-Video input jack connerctor cable that came with it. they both plug into the HDTV tuner card. im running windows vista (64bit) OS.

    So what do I need to know about hooking the PS2 up to my laptop, what program do i use what cable, etc... i want to make sure i know everything i need before i get a package sent so im not missing anything. unfortunatlly there is no wal=mart or best buy in baghdad.

    thanks much
