    I've got one that is built into the Centronics type connector and plugs
    right
    into the back of the printer. Then just plug in a USB cable. Bought it
    at Best Buy I think.

    to do that converter

    Then buy one, reverse engineer it and repackage it. :)

    Give yourself extra credit for snowing the teacher. ;-)

    Good Luck!

    Why would you want to make one when you can buy one for a mere pittance?
    Try doing a google search for USB parallel converter or port replicator.

    And _please_ post to the appropriate newsgroup,
    comp.sys.ibm.pc.whatever, maybe periphs or printers.
