Wood Stove addition to radiators

I would like to get a wood stove that I can hook-up to my existing radiator heating system for my house. I have a 4 year old oil burner that is very efficent and heats the hot water great. But is oil is going up and I have a ton of free time to cut and burn wood. A friend of mine's father has a Franklin Hydro heater stove in his house that he used to heat the whole house and that is what I want but I can't find anything like that anywhere. he also has a oil burner with radiator heaters so I know it can be done. But where to look.??! I'm not looking to replace my 4 year old oil burner to get a combo one just want to add to the existing system. I have a seprate chimney to vent it from the basement next to the existing heater that's where I want to add it. HELP

Do you know of any I can use INDOORS. I can't put a big out door one in my yard but I do have a extra chimney that is not being used. So here's what I want to do. put a wood stove or furnace inside in the basement next to the existing oil furnace and hook it up to the radiators.
