Hello Gord,

Yea, I think someone will come forward with the Ethernet info again.

On a related subject, has anyone thought about porting CT to Unix,
(Linux, actually, which will run on a PC), as it's known for it's
multi-user capabilities? Wonder if a Linux box running CT could
then be hooked up to a bunch of simple terminals (via ethernet)
and make life easy for multi-ops?

Vry 73,
Glenn  KB1GW

P.S. Linux comes in several "distributions," but they are all based on the 
basic underlying software. (A '386 or better with 8 Meg of RAM will do it 
for you.)

For more info on the Linux operating system (a Unix work-alike), which is 
free, BTW, see:
 -- The Linux Users' Guide at:

 -- Linux Online - The Linux Home Page http://www.linux.org/
 -- The Debian distribution (of freeware):  http://www.us.debian.org/

 -- Debian Linux Installation & Getting Started: 

 --Finally to download Linux, see:  Installing Debian GNU/Linux 1.3
stable/disks-i386/current/install.html   (That's all on one line.) Scan down 
the page 'til you get to the part that says: "Methods for Installing Debian"

Are hams using Linux?  See: 

And,  ftp://amsat.org/amsat/software/Linux/

But you should be comfy with messing with a new operating system if you're 
going to delve into this. We now return you to "CT and the case of the 
missing VE section."
