Does anyone know if this will work with a parallel port sidecar?

It should work fine. I have a Backpack 1.44mb floppy running on mine. It will work faster if you do the bidirectional mod, but it should work even on a standard port.

I have one and it works like a charm. Really handy for accessing large files or CD based repositories... I have it daisy chained to a 3.5" backpack drive and a zip drive.
