It would help if you mentioned the Mac model. I left a G3 333Mhz in my parents house that didn't have USB and I bought a PCI USB card and it worked great. Only in OSX 10.2 though the OS 9.2 doesn't recognize the USB. Can you activate File Sharing, transfer the document you need to print into your newer computer and attempt to print there? You should have no problem with text documents, that's the way I do it from my Mac PPC 8500/180, my G4 does the hard work.
