UPDATE: Ok, decided to trash any idea of getting my old setup going (C-64, etc). Will use (maybe i said this already?) my Dell, XP Pro, PK-232 (and i just found my CP-1 and CP-100 in my closet). Ordered an RS-232 to usb adapter to cover any configurations i may need to use and for flexibility, and for the record, i have been getting a lot of off line assistance from "Dave AA6YQ". It will be a few days before adapter comes in and i start interconnecting a few things.
