    Make sure there are mac drivers before you go trying to figure out how to plug it in. The chances that the manufacturer developed drivers for a platform that has no native way to connect to their printer is pretty slim.

    Eluk,
    That one would also work, but the one I pointed to would connect to the computer end of the printer's cable, making the whole cable longer.

    Jtown,
    I can also get drivers from openprinting.org for the 3200.

    Thanks guys,

    You should consider putting the money from the cable toward a new printer.

    I will also get a new printer soon, something "networkable"

    Have you priced printers lately? Why would you bother with putting money into a cable ?

    Go get a <$100 HP printer, get connectivity, faster printing, better PQ and cheaper ink.
