I just looked at a IINTX and the ports I see looking at the back from left to right are:  Apple Desktop Bus (ADB), Centronics SCSI port for attaching a hard disk, 25-pin female serial and LocalTalk.

To print from a PC you are interested in the serial port.  You cannot hook this printer up to a twisted pair network unless you buy a third party box which would then connect to the AppleTalk or serial port.

The printer uses a Canon EP-S cartridge.  This is the same as used by an HP LaserJet II, III and IIID printer.

You may find the specifics on how to print through the serial port from a PC at Apple's TechInfo Web site.  The URL is:

http://til.info.apple.com/

Once at this site search for 'LaserWriter IINT' in the topic area  'Printers'.

The first two articles explain what you need to know.  They are:

LaserWriter IINT: Serial PostScript Batch Mode From DOS (8/95)
LaserWriter IINT: Setting up PostScript Connection To
 PC (4/95)

If you have any trouble deciphering their explanation I will be glad to provide answers to specific questions.  If you can't get to this information I will cut and paste it to a future answer if you like.
