It is actually relatively easy to implement. You need to set up the Driver Development Kit (DDK) on a classic Mac and compile the sample driver that comes with the DDK. Once you have that running, you replace the hardware access functions with Relativity calls / native calls into the Einstein system. 

Einstein then can either simply behave like a client, or, if you are professional in network programming, behave like a bridge into the host network. The bridge of course would be the perfect solution.
