With the Newton on, you want to do a reset (press the small button on
the back of the Newton). Immediately, turn it over and hold the pen
down on the left part of the SCREEN, about half way down. Keep it held
down as the Newt boots, and it will ask you, after the chime and the
Newton splash screen, if you want to load packages on your flash store
(pick No), then continue holding if you also want to be prompted about
the internal store. If you want to start from the internal store, let
the pen up after answering No in the previous step (flash store). That
should do it.
