I have a USB to parallel port cable as the laptop has no parport and I 
have a good old HP A3 printer. Support for that is limited in Linux and 
it cripples that printer. So I  will first go for the other options. 
Those NICs were Xircom if I remember well. We used Xircom a lot in the 
old modem days. Fond memories of them modem beeps.

If someone send a 1 MB file one could forget the hotel breakfast or cut 
transmission.  Of course breakfast was first prio.
