    I did this for my first VCF exhibit in 2006:


    I had a IIE with a workstation card and a IIGS connected by Phonenet to 
an Asante Ethernet to Localtalk adapter, which allowed them to talk to 
Netatalk on the Linux machine.  I don't remember the specifics after all 
these years, but I found some of the documentation from the exhibit:


    Instead of the Asante adapter, you could use a Cayman Gatorbox or 
Kinetics Fastpath to bridge the two networks.
