I will try the USB stuff. But is there any other way of custom controlling hardware. Using electronics and anything in computer. Thanks for your complements about my forum, I run a site too. And according to me age does not matter to step in the Linux world. ( as for me when I was 13). Are you a Linux user or developer? cause I need some members to my forum.

Well...yes. u can easily control custom hardware using computer's parallel or rs-232 (serial) port...check out the forum for more details...

as far as my knowledge about linux is concerned...i'm illiterate to it...well i'm not against it....but i fully respect a developer and believe source codes shud not be exposed...though i fully agree with freewares...

so i decided not to expose myself to the linux world...

sorry for that...

neways where do u belong to...
