    I 'believe' it's called a LocalTalk cable.


No, a miniDIN-8 is what Apple (and Silicon Graphics??) uses for RS-422 serial 
cables (differential version of RS-232).  A LocalTalk cable is a single pair
cable which is daisy-chained with local LocalTalk transceivers.  Those things
connect to a Mac via a miniDIN-8, which may be where the confusion comes from.
But a miniDin-8 to DB25 probably is an Apple cable (or maybe an SGI cable).

All of the above connectors can be found in a Mouser catalog, and they don't 
have a minimum order (their raison d'etre).  I can look up the pinouts if
anyone needs that.
