1. Q:Connecting Mac Powerbook and LINUX-PC

Hi all there,
I am planning to connect a Macintosh PowerBook Duo 230 with only one
serial(printer)/appletalk port to my PC.
Q: 1. Is there some way to do this and access each filesytems (Mac = HFS)?
   2. Does LINUX support Apple-Talk over serial line?
   3. I there any chance to mount the powerbook disk?

Because of the compact design of the powerbook there is only the one
shared port and nothing like ethernet or so, in my PC there is a Novell
I am not a LINUX expert (... but I hope to improve ;-) ) - much more a newbie!

If you have any experience connecting Mac and PC please report.

Thanks a lot...
