On the mechanical side, you most likely need to use a parallel-serial adapter(25pin-9pin). The adapter will plug into your computer, and the C-10 will plug into the slc 500. Do you already know how to set up the RSLinx?

To connect your laptop to the PIC you need a standard serial cable (Radio Shack) and a DB9 to DB25 adapter (also Radio Shack)

As an additional note, a lot of people have problems getting the PIC drivers to work with Windows2000 or XP. I have been able to get 2000 to work, but have never tried XP. I've read that the older pic boxes are not supported.
In RSLinx, you will need to open the "configure drivers" box. In the list of running drivers, if you have anything running that uses the com port, you will have to stop (or sometimes delete) that driver.
In the drop down menu next to the add new slot, select the 1747-PIC/AIC+ driver, and add it. You will probably need to select the "reserve this com port for exclusive use" box. At this point, if using 2000, I've always had to shutdown and restart my computer. After that, you should be able to connect to the slc.
