Try a parallel port card like the one at http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?N=100007531%20600022012&IsNodeId=1&Submit=ENE

I would second the suggestion of just getting a parallel port card of some nature.

Otherwise - what is your ability at writing device drivers? Ever did that? Because that is what you will need to know -first- before even starting such a project...

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.
