Good Job Alexander!

If you don't mind my addition to the FAQ,.... I just wanted to add that,

1.) You CAN install packages from a PC over Ethernet. See the Newton
Data Browser at:

2.) To get a Mac with the wireless 802.11b card to talk in the right
older "AdHoc" mode, you need specific versions of the driver software
for AirPort. AirPort 1.2 software in pre-Mac OS X systems. I'm not sure
of the correct version for OS X.
