[NTLK] Getting Nethopper to work on Einstein Platform

According to:
Einstein Platform
Userís Manual
For Open Einstein 2007.7
July 9, 2007

.... under "Known Problems" it says:

PCMCIA cards are not emulated. The sockets arenít entirely emulated yet.

Does that mean that the Einstein emulator cannot emulate TCP/IP
activity? That would make my efforts to get Nethopper and other
Newton web browsers to work an exercise in futility. Advice on that
please.

Another source of confusion for me is the fact that the documentation
and online repositories all refer to "Einstein 2007.7" but installing
it and looking at the About dialog in MacOS X, it says: Version 2006.6!

I had assumed that http://code.google.com/p/einstein would be most
current. Am I mistaken about that?

> I've downloaded and installed all of the Nethopper files from

> NetHopper_3.2_User's_Guide.pdf
> nethopper.pkg
> NetHopperJPEG.pkg
> nhscheduler.pkg
> note2net.pkg
>
> I got an error (-3000) on nethopper.pkg but it is in place and

> I searched on unna.org and came up empty. Where oh where can I find
