You are correct about needing some software installed on the Newt
before using ethernet to connect to NCX.
If you have TCP\IP installed you can connect with it. If I recall
correctly You will need to activate port 3679 and connect via your
computers IP#

You cannot run Classic in Leopard so NCU is out of the question.

Other option is if you have a browser on the newt you can set up a
personal web sharing site and install packages via NewtsCape or other

Another option is to announce your location and see if someone in your
area can assist.
