    I built up a SK41G for my daughter (using Win2K) and want to use an old
    Compaq BJ80 (compact) printer to it. This is an older printer that has an
    LPT connection and no USB, while the Shuttle has only USB.

    I bought an LPT-to-USB adaptor cable, loaded the printer driver and hooked
    up the pronter, but can't get the printer to be recognized. From Control
    Panel / Printers I see three available LPT ports, four COM ports, and a
    single USB001 port. Checking the LPT or the USB port boxes doesn't get
    things going either. Can anyone give me some advice about what else needs
    to be done to make this printer work on this computer? thanks in advance
    for any help.
