Procedure to put maps on bland data card ?

What's the Procedure to put maps on bland data card ?

I finally found the ny topo files I had thought I downloaded and I'm gonna get the inland lakes and waterway DVD and want to put them on a blank data card.

Now I got to figure out how to go about doing this on my mac .....

back in march I downloaded this garmin stuff:
(while I still had hi-speed internet, now I'm on dialup)
RoadTripforMac_202.dmg
InstallGarminCommunicatorPluginforMac_264.dmg
BaseCampforMac_2007Beta.dmg
WebUpdaterForMac_205.dmg
POILoaderforMac_210.dmg

Do I have what I need here?

edit:
I clicked on the RoadTripforMac_202.dmg and it installed:
Garmin RoadTrip
Garmin MapManager
Garmin MapInstall

and ....... I was able to view the ny topo maps! cool.
and this ny topo map I got (free) seems to have enough detail for me?! me thinks!

so now I'm thinking .....
does the 478 have enough internal memory to also have these topos in it as well? or do I have to go to a high priced garmin data card?
