[nos-bbs] Help with getting minimal JNOS configuration working

  I don't have your exact hardware, so I can't comment on much except for
the "vhf" errors.

  In the autoexec.nos, there needs to be an interface called "vhf" defined.
You use the "attach" and "ifconfig" commands to do so:
attach asy ttyAMA0 - ax25 145.09 4096 256 19200
ifconfig 145,09 description "145.09 - 1200 baud port"

Check the attach command in your help directory (found in your jnos/help
directory) for specifics. Same for ifconfig.

I wish I could help more, but that is as far as I can go without more info
like the contents of the autoexec.nos file and other config stuff.
