The Serial howto has some help on this, but basically:
* Use an Mac modem cable (min DIN-8 to DB25) plugged into the IW II
connected to the PC's serial port via a modem cable and null modem.
* Use setserial to tell linux to use the UART as an 8250. (buffering
in later UARTs can overflow the printer)
* Use stty to set rts/cts flow control and no post processing.
This gives you a basic draft printer. Ghostscript has a IWII driver
availible, but its not usually compiled in to the binary releases.
but the C.ITOH driver often is, and works with the IW II.
This is from meory, and may contain erros, but I think it'll get you
