The NCU installer installed the communications tools into the active
system folder when you ran it. That wasn't the "classic" system on
your G5 I guess but rather the laptops HD System folder.

You can manually drag and drop them from the Powerbook to the G5's
"classic" system folder.

I think the extension manager under 9 will tell which extensions are
related, but you definitely want the serial tool and the ADSP tool, if
my memory serves.

Good Luck,

PS You could just run the NCU installer again from "classic" on the G5.
