After a long hiatus I'm starting to play around with my old MS-DOS computers again and having a lot of fun with them. So I'm hunting around for a printer to hook up to my DOS system. On eBay I found an affordable dot matrix printer, but the name of it -- Okidata 120 For Commodore Computers -- makes me wonder if it would even work with MS-DOS.

Also, it uses a serial cable to connect to the computers. I can't recall ever having a had printer that used a serial cable, not even in my CP/M days:

So, does anyone here know if I would be able to get this printer to work well with MS-DOS?
