 *    SCC.C - Linux driver for Z8530 based HDLC cards for AX.25     * 
 ********************************************************************
			Version 3.0

General notes
=============

(or: my point of view)

The driver and the programs in this archive are UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
The code is very likely to fail, and so your kernel could --- even 
a whole network. So you'd better follow some advices:

1. Do not use it on systems which run processes vital for human
   life or are connected to such systems.

2. Do not use it on systems containing any important data, or connected
   to systems with such data.

3. If you connect a radio transmitter to your SCC card (that's what I 
   suppose), remember that YOU are responsible for any transmission.

Well, it's YOUR computer, not mine. It's YOUR data, not mine. I warned
you...  (*)

This driver is intended for Amateur Radio use. If you are running it
for commercial purposes, please drop me a note. I am nosy...


...BUT:
 
! You  m u s t  recognize the appropriate legislations of your country !
! before you connect a radio to the SCC board and start to transmit or !
! receive. The GPL allows you to use the  d r i v e r,  NOT the RADIO! !

(and that is A FACT, not someone's point of view!)

For non-Amateur-Radio use please note that you might need a special
allowance/licence from the designer of the SCC Board and/or the
MODEM. 

Also read the disclaimer of warrenty and fitness, please...
