[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
