I also took a look at the Newton OS section of the Newton FAQ (http://newtonfaq.com/newton-faq-nos.html#IIIB3a) for mention of backing up and restoring to a storage card and, unless I missed it, I didn’t see anything about backing up on one device, and restoring it to a second.

You didn’t miss anything, Alan ... information regarding the actual backup/restore process (as well as the differences when performing backup/restore to cards vs. another computer) is completely missing from the Newton FAQ.

These would be good questions to add.
