Ok, so here's the deal.

My dad bought this PC back in 97 and got a Canon Bubblejet Printer with it. Well, the PC died today and he's limping along on my Powermac 6100/66. My question is, can i hook up the printer (parallel port) to the Powermac's SCSI port and use the printer. Were there ever mac drivers for the canon series? It's a Bubblejet 520.

PowerPrint might be an option for you. It's a parallel to serial converter and supports your BJC-250. Here's a link.
