If the unit can connect to the base via some other nodes, it can deliver
directly, otherwise you have to stor data locally or on other nodes that
is within reach.

olsr only handles the realtime links. store-and-forward is something you
have to do yourself in your application.

As long as there is a driver for the device for linux, you should be
able to compile it for your box.

A search for "<devicetype> linux" on google useully give som hints on
