Will this old Dell CD drive work with my new netbook?

I got this CD drive with my first laptop, a chunky Dell Inspiron
(can’t remember the exact model number) in about 1999. It’s been
sitting in a box for years and as I’m in need of a portable CD drive
for my Samsung NC10 netbook, I was wondering whether (a) this will
work with it and (b) if so, where I can get a cable for it. I have a
lead that connected the CD drive to the old laptop, the laptop end
being a parallel port, but the Samsung only has USB ports. Any tips
appreciated 🙂
