You just tie pin 21 of the 2332 to Vcc (+5) - Pin 24 of the 2732 - to read.
There are only two modifications needed normally for reading a 2532/2332
in a 2732 socket.
Pin 21 - Vcc (2732 Pin 24)
Pin 18 - A11 (2732 Pin 21)
If your reader coughs up a /OE error then use diodes:
Pin 20 - 2 Diodes, one to 2732 pin 20, the other to 2732 pin 18. Banded
end to these pins, and you will also need a pullup resistor on the
2532/2332 socket pin 20 so /CE (2332/2532) goes high when not selected.
2K2 would do fine. Anything from your junk box between 1K and 4K7 should
I don't think you will need the diodes though.
