Not yet.  Someone is working on a floppy driver.  If you have any info
that might be useful, let us know...

Nope.  You can use slip or some other RS-232-based communication, but
not LocalTalk...  You're welcome to work on this.  We could probably use
CAP for some of the AppleTalk parts, but we definitely need the actual
LocalTalk drivers to interact with the serial driver.

That's a warning message.  It should be gone in the next release.
