Ok. I tried this and am stumped as to how you accomplished this. If I launch
NCU and don't initiate a connection (FireWire Powerbook--similar to iMac, as
in no serial ports) I have no way to click on "install package" without
_first_ initiating a connection with my Newton. NCU greys out all those
buttons until you make a connection. So, did you create a connection with
your Newton? It sure seems like you did. Secondly, are you sure you are
using NCU, and not NCK (Newton Connection Kit)? Is is possible that you have
your Newton connecting via Ethernet? Something sounds a bit off here, if you
understand me correctly. Exactly how did you get the dialog box. I couldn't
do it just now, without initiating a connection with my Newton.
