I am trying to hook up my 8 bit and my ST via the rs-232 port on the ST
and an rs-232 modem cable I have connected to my 850 interface for the
8 bit.  I built this cool null cable, but now I don
don't know what to do.  None of my terminal programs for either computer
seem to support this kind of connection- and you know what a great help
the manuals are in such matters.
This is really pretty important... I've got a lot of 8 bit software on
ST disks that I want to port over.  And transferring via modem is a 
pain in the butt.  (I've got a 2400 baud and a 1200 baud modem here that
I've just been connecting to eachother to do a live transfer but
I've got so much stuff to transfer that it's almost not worth it.
