Question Advice (needed) on fitting roof mounted TV in car

I've got myself a DVD player for the car and one of these flip down roof mounted displays. Look great etc. (£260 for the lot. Unbranded off Ebay , but works a treat)

But I'm trying to figure out what my best options would be for installing the roof mounted display. I've got a 1998 Espace III

It comes with a flatish plate that you are supposed to secure to the roof first. But of course I can't just stick it on the roof and start poping screw through it. I need some options on how/where I could get away with putting it.

I see a crossmember along the roof just behind the front seats. This would be an obvious candidate. But I would rather have it fitted much further forward, so driver/passenger could see it as well (not while driving, I know).

But as far as I can tell, the cross member is the only metal bit before you get to the front screen area. At that point, you have the overhead lights etc.

Also, how do you go about removing/replacing the roof lining ?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
