Presumably, many have done this before and could not bothered to document it because it was considered trifling. Well, I have spent far more time on things far more pointless, and, so, it is in consideration of ye idle sleepless sinners, that I write to you this here, uh, procedure, for taking an Apple IIe and using it as a a serial terminal for your GNU/Linux box. These instructions were written for a Gentoo Linux machine but they should be easily adaptable to any distribution you run, so if you're part of the great gothic hordes of (x)buntu users (Dear hordes: just kidding about the gothic part), you could probably adapt these instructions to your hippie distribution without too many problems (yes, I said it.)

[A nice guide with humor added, but only suitable for those not easily offended. — Sander]
