Scott, is it truly possible to use a SCSI device with a parallel port?

It is if you have a Parallel port to SCSI adapter like this: http://www.amazon.com/Adaptec-Miniscsi- ... B0053DLZ6C

I still have one of those. I used SCSI hard disk, optical and tape drives almost exclusively for many years, mostly in the late-'80s to mid-'90s. Unfortunately the parallel to SCSI adapters I know of only came with drivers for DOS and Windows 95/98. Scott.
