You can get PCI expansion cards which have USB ports on. I'm not sure if
you can get any with 9pin headers on however...
I think I've seen them at PC fairs.. the idea of them is that if you've
either got :
1) A really old system with no usb slots, and want to add a usb thing or
2) You need more usb slots (but why not use a hub? perhaps contention is
3) Your current usb slots are somehow knackered.
I did have a usb expansion card, but I don't think I do any longer... in
to it you'd just plug normal usb leads.. of course it's not too handy
to use / access, being at the back of the machine.
