Searched for a connector for my pc98 (japanese) laptop. The PC9821Nr15 laptop takes a 14 pin 'half pitch centronics' connector. I've found this item from Hirose DX30AM-14P (plug) and DX20M-14-CV(10) for the shroud. In Q1 units, this will run me $14.00 for one from DALCO. Plus I need to find some half pitch ribbon cable, but the hardware guys here say that it is trivial.
This will allow me to get work on the FreeBSD(98) serial driver more easily, as well as debugging some boot issues with 5.0 on this laptop.
