    Tiger-direct ( sells Part II Research boxes
    that can convert an ATAPI device (HDD, CD, CDRW, Zip, LS-120) to
    parallel port (I believe their part number for this box is
    M128-1010). They also sell boxes for ATAPI to USB. The price range
    is $50 - $60. The box uses the Onstrean chip- I think the Linux
    driver module you need is on26.o (this currently works only with
    EPP ports, I believe). I have one of these and use it with an
    ATAPI CDRW- its works well once you get the PP set to the proper
    mode and speed.
