   9          If you want to connect your Linux box to an amateur radio, answer Y
  10          here. You want to read <http://www.tapr.org/>
  11          and more specifically about AX.25 on Linux
  12          <http://www.linux-ax25.org/>.

  14          Note that the answer to this question won't directly affect the
  15          kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all
  16          the questions about amateur radio.

  24        help
  25          This is the protocol used for computer communication over amateur
  26          radio. It is either used by itself for point-to-point links, or to
  27          carry other protocols such as tcp/ip. To use it, you need a device
  28          that connects your Linux box to your amateur radio. You can either
  29          use a low speed TNC (a Terminal Node Controller acts as a kind of
  30          modem connecting your computer's serial port to your radio's
  31          microphone input and speaker output) supporting the KISS protocol or
  32          one of the various SCC cards that are supported by the generic Z8530
  33          or the DMA SCC driver. Another option are the Baycom modem serial
  34          and parallel port hacks or the sound card modem (supported by their
  35          own drivers). If you say Y here, you also have to say Y to one of
  36          those drivers.

  38          Information about where to get supporting software for Linux amateur
  39          radio as well as information about how to configure an AX.25 port is
  40          contained in the AX25-HOWTO, available from
  41          <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. You might also want to
  42          check out the file <file:Documentation/networking/ax25.txt> in the
  43          kernel source. More information about digital amateur radio in
  44          general is on the WWW at
  45          <http://www.tapr.org/>.

  47          To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
  48          module will be called ax25.

  55          DAMA is a mechanism to prevent collisions when doing AX.25
  56          networking. A DAMA server (called "master") accepts incoming traffic
  57          from clients (called "slaves") and redistributes it to other slaves.
  58          If you say Y here, your Linux box will act as a DAMA slave; this is
  59          transparent in that you don't have to do any special DAMA
  60          configuration. Linux cannot yet act as a DAMA server.  This option
  61          only compiles DAMA slave support into the kernel.  It still needs to
  62          be enabled at runtime.  For more about DAMA see
  63          <http://www.linux-ax25.org>.  If unsure, say Y.
