mind you  the beasties running OS X only have USB ports so you'd need a
USB-RS232 dongle .

there's some serial port stuff in Chipmunk BASIC , but there's a danger in
using the modem & printer ports as RS-232 without buffering etc as they can
be damaged leaving your Mac minus 1 port .

as i've got both an FD-2000 and a 1581 & a copy of big blue reader ,  i
just put stuff onto 720k disks then shove them into my mac , that's how i
move stuff tween them .
