My IRLP Moblie Node

I built this moblie node project with an VIA Epia M-10000 motherboard. 256 megs of ram, 1 gig CPU. I installed a 8 gig solid state hard drive and supplied 12 volt power to it from a pico M3-ATX solid state 12 volt power supply.


Completed inside shot. I installed the Debain IRLP software onto the solid state hard drive using a external USB CD/DVD. the whole install procedures went very smoothly and I got my pgp key in 20 minutes, so I was on the air and talking through the air and the internet in 30 minutes time.
