I have an old HP Laserjet 4M that I'd like to use with my new iBook. Problem is that it's got a parallel port and a serial port. I read online that Laserjets do not use serial ports, and that I should use AppleTalk. Anyone know how to set this up? And can I use the Keyspan serial to usb cable in this case?

Need much help.
iBook G4, 1.42 GHz 1 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.3)
