Be aware that to the best of my knowledge ATA support was, due to the
nonexistence of reliable technical documentation of the Newton hardware and
the Newton OS, still a tad flaky when Paul stopped working on it. If I were
you, I would make frequent backups to standard PC cards unless the data you
intend to put on the ATA card isn't all that important.
