Depends on what you mean by "regular"... several things use DB25. What you want for commslink is a straight-wired (i.e. not laplink, null-modem, or anything else netwoking-related) male-female parallel cable. These are commonly sold as extension cables for parallel port equipment such as printers. If the package says something like "IEEE 1284 extension cable", that should do the trick. I recommend getting a cable ~2 meters (6 feet) or less in length - I've mostly done okay with a 10-foot cable, but it can cause problems from time to time.Now can you use a _regular_ DB25 cable from the par to the Comms link card?
No need to do that unless it becomes necessary... DOS games are nice (well, the post-CGA ones anyway ).I could clear of all my dos games
