[App_rpt-users] Dial vs ACID

When you load dial, I believe the default config files are setup for 
Chan simple USB and so on. You download the config files from the 
Allstar portal via the download script, if you have them configured 
there, or you can do as I chose.

  I just copied all the backed up configs from the old node asterisk 
directory. Actually all I copied was rpt.conf, Iax.conf, extensions.conf 
and USBradio.conf and the usb radio tune file for the node.

Then I edited the modules.conf file to tell the node to use USB radio 
instead of Simple usb.

reboot and go.

Done!
