I have a DELL Latitude running NT WorkStation 4.0, an Apple MacIntosh PowerPC, and an Apple Laserwriter 300 LS.  The DELL is stand alone while the PowerPC is connected to the LaserWriter.

Is it possible for the DELL Latitude to print to the Laserwriter using a special cable and switch?

Yes, absolutely!

All you need is a serial switchbox, and a serial cable to attach your pc's serial port to the switchbox.

Check out belkin's site for the ultimate in serial switching devices.

If you have any further questions once it is connected just let me know!
(you'll probably encounter a problem with your printer "timing out").

I've done this many many times before.

Have Fun
