You shouldn't have any problems as long as you have the right cable (newton
to pc). Download Newton Connection Utilities from if you don't
already have it. You will need to set some initial configuration settings
(com port, etc) and then you should be ready to go.

Plug the cable into the PC, plug the other side into the newton, select
"connect" from the extras menu and click the connect button.

This is the short version. Contact me off list if you need further help.
