Before using this program you must install RTAI (RealTime Application Interface)
a realtime nanokernel which runs Linux at a low priority and provides realtime
services to programs that request them.
You must also build a simple hardware device
to connect the car to your computer's parallel port. Mine consists of
2 transistors and 4 resistors to isolate the 12v signal in the car from the
~5v parallel port.
If you intend to use the nicer user interface a 3d card will help, although
if you arent changing views often it will work on a fairly modest system.
I run this program on a P5MMX 150 laptop with 48MB RAM and software
