I have an old HP Laserjet 4mp which works off of an Appletalk serial 
port connection so i was screwed when i got my 933 g4 ibook. Because 
the printer has always been a rock solid workhorse i got a hold of an 
"Asante Micro Asanteprint" eathernet to serial adapter. While it is 
recalcitrant once in a while it was indispensible in enabling me to 
keep using my existing printer.

You will probably have to try and find one used as i don't think they 
are being made any more. Check used Mac shops maybe you can grab one on 
the cheap.

good luck
