+ help
+ If you want to connect your Linux box to an amateur radio, answer Y
+ here. You want to read <http://www.tapr.org/tapr/html/pkthome.html> and
+ the AX25-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
+
+ Note that the answer to this question won't directly affect the
+ kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all
+ the questions about amateur radio.

+ tristate "Amateur Radio AX.25 Level 2 protocol"
+ depends on HAMRADIO && NET
+ ---help---
+ This is the protocol used for computer communication over amateur
+ radio. It is either used by itself for point-to-point links, or to
+ carry other protocols such as tcp/ip. To use it, you need a device
+ that connects your Linux box to your amateur radio. You can either
+ use a low speed TNC (a Terminal Node Controller acts as a kind of
+ modem connecting your computer's serial port to your radio's
+ microphone input and speaker output) supporting the KISS protocol or
+ one of the various SCC cards that are supported by the generic Z8530
+ or the DMA SCC driver. Another option are the Baycom modem serial
+ and parallel port hacks or the sound card modem (supported by their
+ own drivers). If you say Y here, you also have to say Y to one of
+ those drivers.
+
+ Information about where to get supporting software for Linux amateur
+ radio as well as information about how to configure an AX.25 port is
+ contained in the AX25-HOWTO, available from
+ <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. You might also want to
+ check out the file <file:Documentation/networking/ax25.txt> in the
+ kernel source. More information about digital amateur radio in
+ general is on the WWW at
+ <http://www.tapr.org/tapr/html/pkthome.html>.
+
+ To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
+ module will be called ax25.

+config AX25_DAMA_SLAVE
+ bool "AX.25 DAMA Slave support"
+ depends on AX25
+ help
+ DAMA is a mechanism to prevent collisions when doing AX.25
+ networking. A DAMA server (called "master") accepts incoming traffic
+ from clients (called "slaves") and redistributes it to other slaves.
+ If you say Y here, your Linux box will act as a DAMA slave; this is
+ transparent in that you don't have to do any special DAMA
+ configuration. (Linux cannot yet act as a DAMA server.) If unsure,
+ say N.

+config NETROM
+ tristate "Amateur Radio NET/ROM protocol"
+ depends on AX25
+ ---help---
+ NET/ROM is a network layer protocol on top of AX.25 useful for
+ routing.
+
+ A comprehensive listing of all the software for Linux amateur radio
+ users as well as information about how to configure an AX.25 port is
+ contained in the AX25-HOWTO, available from
+ <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. You also might want to

+
+config ROSE
+ tristate "Amateur Radio X.25 PLP (Rose)"
+ depends on AX25
+ ---help---
+ The Packet Layer Protocol (PLP) is a way to route packets over X.25
+ connections in general and amateur radio AX.25 connections in
+ particular, essentially an alternative to NET/ROM.
+
+ A comprehensive listing of all the software for Linux amateur radio
+ users as well as information about how to configure an AX.25 port is
