You can fiddle with firewire to SCSI converters, though I believe they only run one device at a time. USB is very slow, though you may have usb2. Personally, I'd just install a SCSI card. It would probably work the best and be the cheapest solution. PS: Is this Christmas in May? ;-) Sounds like a very nice box. You may just want to forget using the old PC as a print server, unless you don't mind running a second PC. I just use an Axis server. One box drives two printers and it requires no attention. > -----Original Message----- > From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of > Bernie Epstein > Sent: Monday, May 13, 2002 5:29 PM > To: email@example.com > Subject: Polaroid Sprintscan 4000 connectivity > > > Hello, group.
