[TenTec] Macintosh OS X control with Orion

I am the one running the combination below on my Orion and it works 
quite well.  I have been playing with it for about a week, so I don't 
know all the ins and outs of it.  My problems with the above set up 
has been with trying to transfer the flash updates for the Orion, 
which I have posted elsewhere.

I initially had some problems with VPC and had to load it three times 
before it became stable.  I also think that there may be some 
programs that don't run so well on it.

Hope this helps
