Blast from the past

Have a friend who has an ancient HP laserjet 1100 which has a 36 pin mini centronics socket.

How the heck do I connect this up to a USB port on a new PC with no parallel port running XP

there do not seem to be any USB adapters around that fit this type of socket.

Any ideas out there

I asked HP about this for my 1100. They said it wouldn't work with a USB converter. I ended up with a PCI Parallel port card.

I've still got the PCI card but don't need it anymore. If you want it for your mate then email me and I'll dig out the driver CD and post it out.
