[Support #JQR-685082]: LDM and the Antarctic IDD.

Hi Kathie,

Very good.

Yes, certainly.

The costs are modest if the amount of data you want to move is modest
(which I think is the order of the day for Antarctica at the moment
given the network bandwidth that is available).  We are talking about
a commodity-class PC that should cost less than about $3000.

Are you looking for information on software installation and configuration,
or are you looking first for a "big picture" overview?

If you are looking to get started installting the LDM, please take a look
at the Unidata LDM HomePage to get an idea of what is required.  Start with
the Basics.

> Thank you very much for your help,

No worries.  I apologize for being brief, but I am currently at the AGU
meeting in Baltimore catching up on some email during lunch.
