I got a null/modem adapter for my Palm in Maplins in Dublin. Think it was
£7.50 or something. Of course, silly PCs have wierd serial ports, so you
will need a 25ping female to 9-pin female connector, and then saw off the
bolts on that, so it'll go into a off-the-shelf PC serial port. I'd reckon
spending £20 on a proper serial cable will save you more than enough time !
