I have ordered a new notebook....Vista pre-installed, 4 USB ports, and 1 card slot described as

"1 ExpressCard/54 Slot (also supports ExpressCard/34)"

The new notebook does not have a serial or parallel port. I have some old devices that require both. I have found PCMCIA serial port cards, but I'm not familiar with Express Card/54 Slots, and what kind of cards they support. Are there cards available that will add a serial and a parallel port to my new notebook?

Thanks for any help.
