Question: when did parallel ports become bi-directional (i.e., useable for
zip drives and such)?

Or, to put it another way, how likely would I be able to (ignoring software
issues for the moment) hook up my new SyJet drive to say, my m100? What
about my DG-1?

(P.S., off-topic tip: The Parallel port SyJet is really a SCSI-2 SyJet
with a fancy cable; if you've already got SCSI, and can maybe use the
Parallel port feature...)
