Electronic charting without a serial port...

Hi All, same problem here in The Netherlands, got a new laptop, after being convinced by supplier there was a serial-port.
Not!!(still mad)
I''ve been searching thru the www, and found a device that slides in the PCMIA-port(hope i spell this correct), this converts, PCMIA-port to serial-port, easy to install hot-plugable.Brand is Silicom, but others have become available since, did cost about $100,= then( 1,5 years ago).
Hoping this helps.
