Yes you can connect with your mac and the internet with a 2x00 Newton
or an eMate. In fact I think of it as the preferred way. But you
need to have certain software installed and set up.
See Frank's site for a setup procedure.

If you are running a newer mac and cannot run Classic or if you prefer
not to you will also need TCP/IP or Simon's internet dock installed
and his NCX.

Your problem will be bootstrapping unless you have a serial dongle.
There are folks on the list that offer a card lending service where
you pay a deposit, a linear flash card with necessary software is sent
to you. When you return the card you get you deposit back less
shipping costs.
