First thing to find out is if you even have a slot available to install a 
serial card.  If no, then look around for a usb to male 9 pin serial 
adapter and buy it.  If you can also buy a serial modem hook that up to 
your adapter and check your hardware inventory after the external serial 
modem is installed.  Then with a telecommunications program send the 
command AT <cr> out over the new serial port.  If OK comes up on your 
screen, you've just verified both your adapter and modem work.  You might 
also look at http://www.rcsystems.com/ and see what you can find there.On
