Hm...I dont deal with USB much (using a P133 Linux box as I do...) but I've heard the term "USB Hub" -- maybe this is something you can plug into yo' 'puter and get the hookup with.

A USB hub basically plugs into one of your USB ports on your computer and allows a few USB devices to plug into the hub, so you can have more USB devices connected. As far as I understood.

Shame on me, I didn't go to the links mt posted, but basically, yes, there is. I have two of them actually.

Little things where you put the usb in one end and the other's a serial conection. Bout an inch long. I've seen them at staples . . .
