Thank you for your message.

I have a problem with my e-mate. It's a swap-meet special that is set up
for classroom use by Los Angeles Public Schools. When ever I have tried
to install packages it prompts me for a password which (of course) I do
not know. Is there any way I can disable the classroom function on this
machine in order to install the package?

Thanks for any pointers,

John d L F  (in L.A.)

As the new year rapidly approaches I am hoping that Eckhart's patch is  
installed on all vulnerable Newtons.
This I believe is a system patch that must be installed via a  
connection package such as NCU, NCX or NTC.  Card lending or other  
card based approaches won't work.

If you don't know........
Check your ROM version.  The patched ROMs are.

2.1 (71J059)-1  English 2x00
2.1 (73J186)-1  eMate
2.1 (74J185)-1 German 2x00

If yours is not patched see

If you have no way of installing the patch lets hear from you.

I can help 10 folks out .  Perhaps others can help out too if there is  
a need.

Contact me off list and I will perform the patch for you free.  You  
will need to provide return postage.  The 2100 will fit the small  
fixed rate box so postage would be $4.95 each way.  eMate fits the  
medium box so postage would be $10.35 each way.
