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
(, now freeware, which lets
you print to any networked Windows printer from the Newt via the serial
connection to the Windows machine.
