[aprssig] APRS System Overiding Fundamentals

At any hamfest you can pick up good fast color laptops
now for under $25.  Even with a bad hard-drive, (these
are usually $5 or less) you can make APRSdos run from 
only a single bootable floppy (with only your local maps).

Just let it sit in the corner giving you a nice view of your
local APRS RF network and let IT be vulnerable to lightening
strikes, not your big PC...

But .. if you use and old (discarded) computer .. then why deal with
Windows 
at all??  Run it under DOS.
