My system is just like yours, except I use AirPort, and my Newt can connect
via AppleTalk (with only one problem, see below). It "sees" my Classic
"machine", not my OS X machine, in the "other computer" dialog. I have "Make
AppleTalk active" checked in my OS X Network preferences. In OS 9, I have my
AppleTalk control panel set to use "Ethernet slot 1", which is its name for
my AirPort card. I would presume the only change for you is to make
AppleTalk point to "Ethernet built-in" instead.

One note: My Newton *consisently* fails to see the machine the first time it
looks. After it fails, I try again, and it works.

Good luck!
