[NTLK] Is my Flash card stuck? (and downloading .pkgs)

Hello everybody,

I have two questions, one for me and one for someone else. I'll start
with mine:

My MP2000 came with the stock 4 MB Flash card in the lower expansion
slot, but I can't get it out. Pressing the eject button on the upper
slot makes it do the normal behavior popping out so I can press it
down to eject the card. However, pressing the eject button on my
lower slot does nothing. I shouldn't have to remove the card for a
while, but I want to figure this out so I won't have to deal with it
when I get a bigger card later on. What should I be doing about this?

And the other question. I've been talking to someone who recently
dusted off an OMP and is trying to get it set up. He's
downloading .pkg files on the internet, but apparently the downloads
are going through in text mode and generating useless files. I've
been able to duplicate this problem - most .pkg downloads work fine,
but some (like the ones on the Newt's Cape page) come through as text
files. Is there any way to force a browser into doing binary file
transfers?

Thanks,

-Ian Johnson--
