Software that can simulate real things....

You mentioned the node.  I have jnos running on Mt Tops running
as nodes.  They don't have a lot compiled into them, but they
do have the basics.  They are doing netrom, with all the other
nodes in the area, plus they have there own IP table to work
from if ip is involved, other than netrom.  Hence, the best of
both.  These machines are running dos and not linux.  Small
hard drives, IE:  40 - 400 MB, NOT GIG, and low end machines, such
as 386 or 486.  I think the hottest machine I have out there is
a Pent 100.  This works nice since most of these old machines do
NOT have fans on the cpu, and if a power supply fan craps out,
it's not pushing hard enough to cause a crash.
I infact, had a power supply fan crap out and replaced it AFTER
a 6 month period.  Just couldn't get the time to get there, plus
it was still running, so I wasn't too quick to fix it.

The old machines run great in remote areas in my case.
