If your development platform is linux, _don't_ go for the macraigor
wiggler. I made this mistake and ended debugging using two PC's, one
running linux and gdb and another which runs NT and connects to the
target via the wiggler. Needless to say that this involved writing a
_lot_ of "gateway" software (which I can not release, sorry) on the NT
box before it worked.
