It probably won't find it because your average serial-USB cannot pass

I'm working on getting Tiger to connect to my 2100 via Appletalk and
ethernet, but so far, it's not working. I don't know if it's a cable
problem fried e-net card or hub or if Tiger just doesn't do Appletalk
to a Newton... If I figure anything out, I'll post here...
