Quite a helpful book. I have been reading it all day over here. I have
not attempted to connect a radio just yet.  I have JNOS running with
its default config. I am able to try out the bbs and other commands. I
would like to get the ethernet interface running so i can
telnet,ftp,etc, to the machine form other machines on my network. From
what i understand , i need to load some  kind of driver in dos first
so jnos can use the network card, although i am unsure of what driver
i need. I think the driver needs to be included of the autoexec.bat
file so it is loaded up with dos, but i am unsure.
