Please help if you can.  I have one Syquest 1Gig external disk drive as well as a Iomega Zip drive.  What I want to do is attach both devices to my pentium 166 which has only one printer port.  According to each mfgs. manuals I have to attach each device to the printer port.  Also what do I do about hardware/software conflicts?
Thanks for your input

I have this configuration and it works fine.  While there are some parallel port devices which don't get along with each other, these two seem to work fine together.  I put the ZIP drive closest to the printer port and the Syquest SPARQ second.
