[NTLK] storage and heap questions

Hey all,

I have a couple of questions:

1. Can I install the packages required to use my Wavelan card and the
associated connectivity packages (wavelan driver, Newton Internet
Enabler, etc) on a memory card so that they aren't taking up space on
my Newton's internal RAM store? In this case, I could just pop in the
flash card when I want to use my Wavelan.

2. Is there such a thing as an optimal heap size? If so, what is it?
I bought Dashboard and it's usually around 300K or so, and I'm
wondering how to make use of this information.
