I went to CompUSA and
picked up a few Intelogis PassPort units. The package
included two PC units and a printer unit and the price wasn't all that bad.
I was able to install the Linux drivers for the PassPort on
the laptop easily enough, as the Linux kernel was compiled to support
modules (because of the PCMCIA support).
Try to install the modules on the primary system here. Oops, I don't have
module support in the kernel.

Try to install the modules on the primary system here. Oops, seems I
included the parallel port driver in the kernel and that's grabbing the
port. Need to remove that driver.
Recompile recompile recompile. That's where I'm at right now.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
