>From my experience, parallel-port HDD's and FDD's work fine.  I've heard
that Zip drives won't work becuase the drivers require a 386 processor (I
guess they work in protected mode), but I've never heard of the "guest"
utility.  Interlink or Laplink should work OK over the parallel port, but
the parallel port isn't ECP or EPP, so you won't get the faster transfer
rates that you'd get with ECP/EPP (but it'll still be faster than serial).

Hi All!

I just wanted to drop a note to let everyone know how glad I am that you
are all here.  The Poqet PC Mailing List now has almost 100 members.
That's not a huge number by mailing list standards, but I think we've
gotten a "critical mass" of Poqet users -- enough people are here to
actually start having conversations about the Poqet PC (not just me
answering questions).  Although we don't have a huge volume of messages, I
hope that the messages that do come through are interesting and
informative.  I'd rather have quality over quantity any day.

Based on a couple of messages that I saw, I want to remind everyone of a
couple of things:
a) Although "for sale" messages are acceptable and actually encouraged, please
   refrain from "commercial" postings.  An individual person using the list to
   sell something is OK; a company using the list to sell something is not.
b) When responding to a "for sale" message, please send that response via
   direct e-mail.  Don't send your response to the entire list.
These things really aren't big deals, but I would rather make a comment now
instead of waiting for them to become a big deal later.

Again, I would like to thank all of you for being here.  I welcome and
encourage any feedback and comments you have about the Mailing List and the
Web Site.  I'm always happy to hear ways to make this a better experience
for all of you.

Regards,

Bryan Mason
