You can get a Keyspan Serial->USB Adapter, then use NCU on Windows to
connect serially to the Newt (you might need slowdown.exe, check the
archives for recommended setups, there's been a lot of discussion on
this), and you're good to go.
For printing, I've used Soft Print Pack
(http://www.sytek.ca/products/newton/spp.htm), now freeware, which lets
you print to any networked Windows printer from the Newt via the serial
connection to the Windows machine.
