It runs out off of memory once the floppy is loaded.  

It needs a KISS TNC unfortunately.  I've thought about trying to do 
something with a soundcard but I've not had the time or patience to get 
the linux soundcard / ax25 stuff running.  Nevermind picking a soundcard 
I'd want to support since the space is limited.  Probably soundblaster 16 
and their clones would be best.
