I would pay for a driver with the abilities described above. I have all the
hardware that is needed, and I did manage to connect the Newt to my iBook.
Trouble is, it does not do much. I can install smaller pks and use the
keyboard, that is about it. Very very limited, and it has to happen in OS9.
No way for im/export, backup, net.
I would love to use the Newt in the living-room to read Newtontalk, as even
the iBook can be too clunky just for reading, and I would love not having to
wire the Newt to the Mac each time I back it up.
I would happily cough up $25-30 for such a driver.

Oliver :)
