they could talk direct. Or failing that you should be able to hook up
the null modem cable/box and use an Amiga term program like "Term" or
Termite or one that does VT 100 emulation. VT 100 or VT 220 should be
compatable enough for linux to talk to it. OR see if there is a Samba
port for the AMiga. DOn't know if there is, haven't tried hooking my
amiga up to my linux box "YET". Just got it set back up.
