Default help installing a webcam (parallel)

hey guys

a friend just gave me a webcam he was given, but it's not a USB one. It doesn't have a brand on it, so I can't just go to the manufacturer's website.

One end is the cam, and the other end has a parallel plug. Coming out of the plug is another cable, which has a plug which looks like a female keyboard plug (PC/AT). Again coming out of that is a PS/2 plug.

Any ideas on how to install it?

it sounds like a lot of converters, try to use the right one, you might need a driver to run it though

Is there a serial number or anything?

Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt.
