I've started a page on the laptop.org WIKI, currently at: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/User:Kronenpj to document what I've been doing. Once I get it a bit further along, I'll see if the OLPC folks want amateur-radio stuff in their wiki or somewhere else. In the meantime, anyone with comments or suggestions, please use the discussion tab and we'll work through things.

For what it's worth, I've had good success getting Xastir working on the box. The only part I'm having real trouble with is soundmodem keeps crashing when ever it decodes a packet. Otherwise all is compiling and working nicely, once the appropriate prerequisite packages are installed.
