Some questions on Mac II version 1.1

I have a couple of questions about the Mathematica, (Mac II version 1.1) which
I hope either you or someone on the Mathematica mailing list can answer -
Australia is rather isolated & there aren't any Mathematica experts here (yet !!)
	1.  Our copy of version 1.1 does not have the ODE.m package for
	    solving differential equations.  Is this package available
	    yet, or is it to be released in a later version ?
	2.  How do we go about getting future updates to Mathematica ?
	    News of any upgrades takes a bit of time to filter out 
	    to Oz, we have got electronic mail and a hook into Usenet 
	    news, but not a Portal account.  Do you know if the Portal
	    system is functional in Australia so we can get access to 
	    Mathematica on-line services ?
	3.  We have a network of Apollo's and a Silicon Graphics Iris
	    at the labs as well as Macs.  Once Apollo get their act
	    together and release Mathematica we would like to run it
	    on our DN10000.  We have got both serial and ethernet links
	    between the Mac and the Apollo - will future versions of
	    Mathematica on the Mac support ethernet comms protocol or
	    will it be limited to serial links ?  Would there be any
	    advantage in high speed communication between a remote 
	    kernel and the front end ?
	4.  I read a review in the 16th. Feb. edition of Nature for
	    MathReader - a program for viewing Mathematica notebooks.
	    Is this just a utility for those unfortunate sods who
	    have not got Mathematica or does it do more tricks ?
I hope you can provide a few answers.  Many thanks for your time,
