How soon do you need this working, and how much of a hacker are you?  I managed to
get docs for the PowerPrint mac serial to parallel converter, which goes for about
$50, but my serial programming ability is so limited I couldn't get anything to
work at all.

If we can get something to work, this will be a great mac Linux printing option!
