No. Linrad looks for all its files in its own directory with one 
exception and that is the eme database. The eme database is the 
files you can download from the Internet and they are not belonging
to Linrad.

This means that the files from eme-2min has to be placed in the lir
directory. The parameter files supplied in the tar file are probably
obsolete but the datafile and adfile should be ok.

> How do I create an  adfile that linrad can find?
You make it with any text editor

>What is the purpose of the adfile?  
You may have a large number of saved data files and it is not practical
to have everything in the lir directory. 
adfile is just a text file that contains the complete file names for
all the different data files you want to be able to choose.

If you leave the eme-2min where it is you should create a text file
with the name adfile and place it in the linrad directory.
In this file you should have a single line:
> I typed   /home/eme/eme_2min.raw  /home/eme/eme_2min.raw_par         into the 
> adfile as I had read in letter posted on the website.   
Yes. This is even better because with this content in adfile
you will get parameters for the recorded file that will not interfere
with the parameters you use with your own hardware or other
recorded files.

Just place adfile in the lir directory.
