I've got a "live" 486 (Win 3.1 and dos) and we need to get data off of it. I have a few older laptops that might be able to act as transitional computers (Win 95. 98)to laplink data through - but each of them have storage issues already. These are the only only ones that com and/or parallel ports. Before I dig into that approach does any one have suggestions for the "easiest" to grab the data from this old beastie? Someone in another thread mentioned a usb hard drive "rack" or holder? Would that work with an old full height hard drive? Sigh. Suggestions/advice welcomed. Thanks.
