It is very gooood!!! Thanks, Koeppen and Guyot!

What we need, now, is just a way to read our cards with newton soup on
PCMPCIA pc ports...
Is it possible????
I am keeping on shape one MP2000 and one MP2100 just wainting an application
like that to run on my notebook. If you can develop a app to do that, should
be fantastic.

Cheers for all
