I think it would be far easier to stick a pci parallel port in a spare slot on your motherboard if you have one!! There are converters that will change the connection from serial to parallel but im sure they need software running to do the job and that might not help with the running of the willem!!!

Hi
Im not 100% sure but
usb has a timing issue (infinity usb is an example)which may cause probs
So i would advise getting a pci card
