    Hello everyone.. recently I've purchased new comp, Core2 Due E6750
    with the Intel DP35DP motherboard.
    http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/DP35DP/index.htm
    my problem is that I don't have Serial port (for my old Wacom tablet), only USB ports.. I also bought COM to USB (outside) connector but it does not support win XP 64 :(
    to cut things short, I've noticed I do have "One serial port via header" on the Motherboard, not sure what it means.. I guess I can plug in an inner Cable to that slot, Inner Serial Cable? does anyone know if there is such a thing and what its exact name?
    Thanks!!!
    I really need it.. and quite lost without my wacom......

    There two ways to add a serial port. You can either buy a USB to serial cable or you can buy a card to put in your computer that will have a serial port on it.

    I really don't understand how the usb one wouldn't work unless couldn't find a driver for it but most companies are good for providing drivers for all version of windows.
