The old settings are probably what give the errors. I would immediately do a
*full* backup, then, I would 'hard reset' the Newton. To do a 'hard reset', tap
the reset button in the battery compartment on the back, and while keeping the
button down, filp the ON/OFF switch to ON and keep it ON until you see a message
on the screen asking if you really want to completely erase the internal memory
(or something like that). Tap YES and your MP should be returned back to factory
settings. Restore the information from your backup. Make sure you *don't*
restore "System Informations". Most third-party software registrations will be
lost in the process, but you should be able to retrieve those information. Make
sure you're restoring applications that are known to work under 2.0. Most of
them will, but not all of them.

Good luck!
