I think it is/was possible in some circumstances to have two computers on the same SCSI bus. You need to change the SCSI ID of one of the controllers so they don't clash, and of course be careful not to access the same drive/partition from both computers at once. And also set one or both controllers not to reset the bus at power-on or reset. (So all in all, cool if you can get it to work, but getting it to work might be tricky.)

You might be out of luck using a USB parallel cable for that, but I'd love to be proved wrong. (PC-side software might try to access native parallel port hardware directly, and/or the USB cable might not support all features of the parallel port.)
