Biggest problem you will probably have with the willem programmers is 
whether the thing will work with your pile and properly work with a 
physical parallel port.

That is the biggest barrier to that programming hardware I now of.

There are past discussions (which can be found on archive.org for now if 
need be) discussing what will and won't work with vm support, and with 
usb to parallel converters.
