Just to clarify this point, which Tony made in another message: you CAN
use SD cards on the Newt running OS2.1 (which means MP2000, MP2100 and
eMate), but not natively. You need a PCMCIA adapter as well as Paul
Guyot's ATA driver (which is a fantastic piece of software). You'll
find it here:

And Brian is right about newtSync as well. I have had very good luck
syncing iCal, Address Book, notes, outlines, etc. in Panther, but there
are some tricks to getting it to work right: Start with nothing in your
Newt's Datebook or Addressbook. In addition, Newtsync does not sync
repeating events properly: it has trouble with daylight savings time,

You'll find newtSync here:

Good luck!
