     Thanks for the information.  I installed NCU and got it to work  
earlier today.  I can upload some packages that i'd previously  
downloaded as part of NIE, but nothing from the UNNA archive will  
install.  I have the modem & dial-up (fastermac), so SimpleMail will  
be next.  (I expect what remains is just the learning curve & getting  
around operator headspace.)
     It's a real Godsend to have the NTLK members as a source of  
advice in getting started with the Newt.
