Perhaps - if you have such a machine.  (I don't.)

I cobbled together a breadboard of TTL (mostly latches/counters and
muxes) which, with suitable software support on the host, lets me read
ROMs via a parallel port.  It's not especially fast, but it's a good
deal faster than a serial line....I really need to transfer it from a
breadboard to something a bit more permanent.  If there's interest I
can draw up a schematic and parts list....
