I'd be interested to know how anyone could avoid using a switchbox when there's only one parallel port on the machine. I've been using a four-way switchbox for 3 older printers, a zip drive and a small scanner, and they all work just fine. Needless to say, I was happy about the 1200 and the new slide scanner using USB ports, although I couldn't get them running using a hub. My old HP big scanner has it's own card and that's another problem - getting the card moved to this new computer. The thought of opening this PC to move the scanner card into sends me off doing something else.
