Howdy folks,

Once again budget triumphs over brains , and I find myself in the posession of a previously enjoyed HP IIId laser printer (in good working order) for a cheap price.

I would like to hook this up to the PowerMac 8600 I have at home for general wordprocessing printing and such, but am not sure how to go about it. I see the HP has both serial and parallel ports on the back...do I need to get an adapter cable and plug it in? I'm sure it's not that simple (it never is).

If anybody knows what's gotta be done, please let me know at your earliest convenience!

PowerPC 8600 / G3500 upgrade
tons of RAM
OS 9.1

Thanks,
GENE
