unless you could somehow transfer it as "frozen" I don't think NBU to 120
would work for NOS 2.1 specific packages.

what you could do is move NIE 1.1, which does work on MP2100, but doesn't
support ethernet cards, etc. since you have a modem, you could then use
NIE 1.1 to download a newer version of NIE 2.0 packages.
