Re: system description needs note on hardware
Hi george,

I just changed the projects's description a bit, it should be more clearly now that the server needs isdn.

Hi Nils - If you look at how many TLAs and FLAs exist in our realm you'll begin to see that i4l is a little too cryptic to convey any meaning at all except to those people who are already using ISDN on Linux and therefore don't need to know that ISDN is required for fonmon. For everyone else that information is neccesary.

I would have ISDN myself but it is not available in my area yet. It will be in only two years :-)

You probably already know this but TLA = three letter acronym.

i4l means ISDN for LINUX ;-)

system description needs note on herdware
Fonmon will only work if you have an ISDN card running in your Linux server. It cannot work with a normal phone line modem. This information should be included in the project description - unless that feature is going to be added.

Please note - this is not intended to be a criticism, just a clarification so more folks will know if fonmon won't work for them.
