Aha! Well, not having a PowerBook, I never hit that problem, sounds like a
real pain!

I don't get it. Are you planning on selling it?

Sounds like instructions for pre-OpenTransport mac networking (OT has an
"AppleTalk" CP). In fact, I had SingleTalk first, you're right it looks
more appealing, but the newer Dummy adev (2.0) works with OT, which IMO is
a definite improvement over the old networking sw.
