New Plotter setup Info HELP

Hi guys , ok so I have been doing graphics for 15 years on a graphtec 1200mm plotter and a very old computer using illustrator 0.8 I think , however my pc has now died , PSU unit I think , I have a newer pc and would like to hook my plotter up to that , so I need some advice on where do I start , a simple free cutting program , and also how to install my plotter to it , thanks in advance
