There aren't such restrictions, although I've read that a few programs
required to run on the internal store, but they are usually the exception.
Obviously, other packages will work better if they reside on you internal
store, like a font package or a custom sound. Check the FAQ at
<http://www.chuma.org/newton/faq/> as I think that it sometimes suggests to
install such and such packages on the internal store.
