Using the laplink program in ROM, but you'd need the serial cable to
connect to another MSDOS machine or else use the internal modem for
the connection. It's possible to manage without the disk drive, but
you'd need access to another computer *and* the serial cable to do
it conveniently.

Less than the $50 you've already been offered, alas.

JEM is a mailorder company in Boston that has, in the past, advertised
Ultralites and accessories for sale. They might still have the parallel
port adapters in stock. Their number is 617-254-5500.
