Well, I've made a little progress. On boot I get an error from the
DockTCP extension, and ethernet is not available as an option for
connection, only AppleTalk. However, I have managed to get NewtSync to
start a connection (from the MP end), and it activates the ethernet
card, fires up DHCP and gets a correct IP address, however, it then
fails to connect to newtsync running on my mac.

I've ordered a serial adapter that should get my serial connection
working instead - I just need to stop these blasted date reminders
from popping up (they also seem to suck up all the CPU and it goes
very slowly), but I need a connection to install the 2010 patch
reminder wiper...
