Thanks Joshua! If I can find one of these adaptors it sounds like the
ideal solution. I didn't even know such a thing was possible.

Are there any traps I should be aware of in doing this. I know I have
to avoid the ports/IRQs with mouse & modem on them. But I'm not
totally sure how to do this. Perhaps when I run the printer install disk?
