the silversurfer will be definetly worth it when we are finished
implementing the link-stuff... giving you a drive 7 which works much
like the 64net approach.

the cartridge doesnt come with any documentation, except a notice
about the websites. (as the website says, internet access is required
to get any further updates and/or support).

as for the clearity of the documentation, please let me know WHAT is
unclear to you. (best, post that on the rr-list). we tried to create a
pretty much "dummy proof" documentation actually, and IMHO its pretty
useable (except for some details which you wouldnt need to know anyway
unless you are an "expert").

Best regards,
