[CentOS] USB->Parallel cable compatibility

I have an installation where we're replacing a rather old Linux
box with a new one that has no parallel ports.  The old box has
two parallel ports going to Okidata printers.

The IOGEAR GUC1284B USB to Parallel Adapter cable looks like it
might be a simple solution to this, but I would like to know that
it works before getting a couple.

Comments?
