Being a complete moron myself, the best way for me to stay out of trouble would be to steer you toward a set of instructions written by a non-moron. :-[
Can you please start by taking a look at this page:
...and posting back? It's Tony Kan's My Apple Newton blog.
Meanwhile, because I do not want to take anything for granted, I will ask: do you have the requisite serial cable? If not, can you please confirm that your PC has a DE-9 style connector on the back:
If so, and you do lack a cable, someone is flogging the one you need on eBay:
...at a sky-high price (at least, the price seems so to me). Perhaps someone else on the list can suggest a source for the same cable at a more reasonable price?
(With any luck, you already have such a cable, but as I say, I do not want to take anything for granted.)
