| 1. (Where) can I get Newton Drivers for a Xircom modem/ethernet card?

You can't. Xircom has been very proprietary with their hardware, requiring
all sorts of expensive NDA paperwork and such. Nobody has ever written a
Xircom Ethernet driver for Newton.

| 2. Is there any way to read a Newton PC Card in a powerbook?

Sorry, no. Conventional computers use conventional filesystems. Newton,
being an unconventional computer, uses a completely different method of
data storage, one that is totally alien to conventional data storage.

| 3. Has anyone sucessfully connected to their newt via IRdA WITHOUT using
| any additional software on the newt?

Connected to what?
