Can we eliminate or have a revised version of pair programming when practising XP?

We are fairly new to Agile and our business users think all their Christmases have come at once.
They can (and do) ask for everything and anything and never seem to be refused however absurd the direction in which they drive the project.
They still want to set infeasibly short, rigid deadlines driven by events outside the business without any regard for the practical demands of development and testing.
How can we best educate the business that giving them almost day to day control over the development goes hand in hand with an acceptance that they pay for it in other ways?

I understand the value of creating a rhythm of delivery, but is it OK to allow Iterations/Sprints to finish when they do ... rather than fix the time and date? (But keep the daily pressure on via scrums)

My question is if there is any comparative stuides covered in the book? I think it will help us to understand the benefits of Agile Development Process.
My Another question is
Is the agile development process explained in the book is only for Software Development or can it be applied to the development of any thing for example electronic hardwares?

In pair programming, is it really required that the two developers have to be in same physical location? or is it ok if they are in differnt place and communicate often through mail, chat and telephone?

My question pertaining to usage of Agile technologies with teams of relatively less experienced developers.
Do you think pairing can work effectively when there is a gap in the skill levels of the various developers in a team?
Does the reduction in the amount of documentation hamper the learning (or handover) of new team members?
I'll be thankful if you could share your thoughts on these questions.

I read the amazon overview of the book. However I have one question - does the book cover any programming language / project as a practical example ? Is the book more of a reference theory oriented book, or teaches you how to actually implement AP/XP by giving examples ?
