My NPDS is down but the (newted.org) readme.html looks up-to-date and there is also a list the files at the bottom:


Quickest way to create a Lender Card is tu use a Mac running Classic Mac OS 7, 8, or 9. You'll need (un)Stuffit 7 and Newton Connection Utilities to restore the backup file.


My original Lender Card was actually created by setting the Newton's date (first to January 10, 2010) and downloading packages into the inout box using Newt's Cape. 

I changed the date on my Newton before downloading each group of files. This placed similar files together in nice groups since the default sort/overview order of the inbox is by date. 

Packages in the inbox can also be beamed to other Newtons but be aware of available storage space on the default (I'll emphasize internal) store.
