Hello group

Thank you
I am currently installing Mandrake 9.0.

After I install it, what next?

Do I install the ax25 node stuff? or is it a part of the install?

Sorry for all the questions.  So much keeps changing.  I'm trying to
keep up "WITH THE JONES"!

Thank you for all!
until then
W5dav cc K5PLD-Node
