Correct. It's also necessary to comment-out line 64 in
!Boot.Resources.!Internet.!Run which RMEnsures AppleTalk.

Incidentally, there seems to be a bug affecting unplug, on RPCEmu/620

   *unplug appletalk
   *
   *unplug
   No modules are unplugged
   *

Verma confirms that the module _is_ unplugged, so *unplug , without
parameters, doesn't return the correct information.
