As far as maps, latest Xastir (whenever the anonymous CVS server
catches up to the development server) should work for you.  You just
need to set the environment variables and set up the .netrc file.
It's written up in the FAQ now.

Do we also need some method of getting the internet connections to
work through a proxy firewall, or do they allow such things through
