Not all of this information is easy to find, so I hope this will help with the spread of this knowledge. Credit to N1RWY and his website for getting me going. The write up below adds my personal experience and warnings of pitfalls to his setup.  Link to Google Search for his site (I didn't link direct into his page, but you will find him at the top of the search.  His page contains some very intrusive ads and I think his page is being re-tooled. )
