Whoops, not quite! Looks like a typo there, Laurent! (Why'd these
things have to have such similar names, Apple?)

- Newton Connection UTILITIES (NCU) is for OS2.x Newtons

- Newton Connection KIT (NCK) is for OS1.x Newtons

- Newton Backup Utility (NBU) as I recall was used to backup my 1.3
Newton as part of the 2.0 upgrade of my 120, but that's been a number of
years and I may be misremembering. I think it _will_ work with 2.0
Newtons though, but I'd use NCU instead. NBU is apparently just as
stripped down/unfinished NCU...
