When I was running the TUS JNOS 1.11f gateway several years ago I had  
to reboot DOS quite often (memory usage issues, IIRC).  I switched it  
to Linux and everything was much more stable.

Actually a node application for Linux with JNOS-like functions (more  
so than AWZnode, etc.) using kernel AX.25 and networking wouldn't be  
a bad idea.
