[PLUG] Software defined radio

I guess I'm weird, but I much prefer receiving distant stations to
transmitting. Right now I have a shortwave regen I built
from a kit. It's good, but not that good. Someday I'd like to build an
SDR (Software defined radio) setup, but to save time and money I'd like
to follow in somebody else's footsteps.

Has anybody here built a receiver, 200Khz-31Mhz, using a Linux
computer, Free Software, and fairly cheap, available hardware? If so,
please let me know exactly what you used. I want to listen to AM, SSB,
and CW. I assume it would be easy to program BFO. FM would be nice, but
not necessary. I don't care about digital radio.
