But this diskonchip is soldered onto a mini-computer.  This thing 
doesn't even have a serial port on it.  I guess I'll just have to 
replace it with a Soekris dual radio setup and scrap this Net Nimble 
system.  I don't see being able to do anything without having some 
other equipment to plug into it.
