I am aware that I need a hard drive, but still to burn a CD and then pop it
in what  up to now has been a non-working no hard-drive machine and be web
browsing 5 minutes later was pretty amazing.
Anyway, Fugawi, OzieExplorer, and various Nobletech software packages all
are designed for marine navigation. I am hoping there is some Linux
equivalent.
Thanks,
Joe N3HGB
