[NTLK] Install packages from a web page?

The server serving the Newton Packages needs to have the correct MIME type set.
the MIME I have set it:
Extension - .pkg
MIME Type - application/x-newton-compatible-pkg

If this is set, then the Newton will download the package and install it on the fly (hmm, I guess that this could qualify as OTA application installation if you are using WiFi!)

OK, so I have the network card running again.

When browsing web pages, I would like to be able to download and install programs, for example from here: http://newton.tek-ed.com/ . What do I need to install to browse, download, and install?

On a similar note, how do I sync over the network connection, and is there an NTK link as well?

Thanks for any help, and sorry if all this was answered before a thousand times ;-)
